THE ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRIC CHARGING STATIONS
Electric charging stations offer four main advantages to companies:
FAST AND SUSTAINABLE CHARGING
The charging stations naturally allow to supply electric vehicles such as cars or bicycles with energy. But above all, they combine fast charging with a robust solution. Our stations can be installed outside for simple, intensive and shared daily use.
Combined with solar panels, the stations deliver their full potential. They allow, in fact, to value the energy produced during the day by your panels by consuming it directly. This operation is particularly profitable if we compare it to the yield of this same electricity, simply put back in the electrical network. It also avoids you a possible additional tax.
INTERESTING RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI)
The installation of electrical charging stations has become widely affordable in recent years. Due to their very reasonable installation costs, they represent, in our opinion, a financially interesting investment. In combination with solar panels , the return on investment can be exponential.
SUSTAINABLE AND INNOVATIVE
Stations are still not very present on the Belgian territory. Thus, companies that have them are often seen as pioneers and “responsible”. This image of being actors of sustainable change is, for many of them, an important element that reinforces their social responsibility. You improve the comfort of your committed employees who will no longer have to run after public charging stations and gas stations.
WHAT FINANCIAL MODEL TO ADOPT FOR CHARGING STATIONS
Electric charging stations can be combined with many financing or cost-sharing logics when made available to others. Here are some interesting topics to discuss with your consultant.
HOW TO OPEN YOUR CHARGING STATION TO THE PUBLIC?
The growing sale of electric vehicles requires more and more charging stations everywhere in Belgium. Your company may be located along a highway or a busy road or, on the contrary, in an area with few electric charging stations. For marketing reasons, why not reference your charging station on location applications and road maps. It could generate traffic from visitors waiting to charge to nearby points of sale such as restaurants, showrooms or retailers.
BILLING FOR THE CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRIC CHARGING STATIONS?
The logic used for traditional fuels is applicable to private/public charging stations. The implementation of a billing per KW/h or per duration, of preloaded cards or of “electricity” cards similar to the gasoline card are, under certain conditions, possible solutions that allow the use of your electric charging station by third parties.
HOW TO SET THE PRICE OF THE ELECTRICITY AT THE TERMINAL?
Coretec Energy, through its energy trading division, assists you in the choice of the financing model and the pricing of electricity at the charging stations. A fair price that takes into account the efficiency of your infrastructure, the service provided and the fluctuating market price.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE MY CAR?
The charging stations installed by Coretec Energy have a power of 11Kw or 22kw. They allow for a fast recharge varying from 1 to 3 hours depending on the type of battery to be recharged. Compared to an ordinary outlet, this represents a time saving of several hours each time you use it.
IS IT INTERESTING TO COUPLE MY CHARGING STATION TO MY PHOTOVOLTAIC INSTALLATION?
Without a doubt. Not only is the electricity from your charging station free of charge, but you also make the energy produced by your panels profitable by consuming it directly rather than feeding it back into the grid. The return on investment, both for your panels and your bollards, is greatly enhanced by this synergy. Click here to learn more about our solar solutions .
ARE THE STATIONS COMPATIBLE WITH ALL CAR MODELS?
Our charging stations are equipped with a type 2 socket on the vehicle side. This type of socket allows “normal”, “accelerated” or “fast” recharges depending on the capacity of the vehicle’s charger. This is the European standard recommended by the European Community, and is compatible with a large number of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Smart, Tesla, Volkswagen and Volvo.
WHICH CHARGING STATIONS DOES CORETEC ENERGY RECOMMEND?
Coretec Energy recommends 11kW or 22kW wall-mounted charging stations with a three-phase 400V power supply for corporate installations. Little invasive and very robust (IP 54), they do not require any earthworks, can be fixed on many supports and allow an intensive use inside and outside and an exemplary charging time. They can be secured. Note that we are not affiliated with any brand. We follow the evolution of the market and we select the best products adapted to your needs.
