Along with our OLEV (Office for Low-Emission Vehicles) and EVBox accreditations, IU Energy is also accredited for Rolec workplace and home charging stations.
This means that we can install your EV charging stations for most requirements, including EVCPs required for the OLEV Workplace Charging Scheme and OLEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme.
Rolec EV manufactures a range of EV charging points which have been specially designed for on street locations, such as marketplaces, railway stations, sports venues, restaurants, shopping parks, car parks, etc.
Why should you business be interested in Rolec and EVBox Electric Vehicle Charge Points (EVCPs)? There are several answers to this and they all relate to protecting and growing your customer base and your profitability. The UK is already meeting the target from the Committee on Climate Change and is on course for 60% of new cars to be electric by 2030.
Whether you’re in leisure and hospitality (many hotels going green are taking advantage of this seed change), retail, wholesale, manufacturing and engineering, health and care, sports, education, or an office based business, you’ll attract Electric Vehicle (EV) owners away from your competitors by providing them somewhere to charge their vehicles – Rolec or EVBox have most needs covered, depending on your location and need.
Charging times for EVs range typically from 9.5 hours to 30 minutes. These modes represent power outputs and therefore the charging speeds available to charge an EV. EVs are one of those big disruptive changes that if embraced, provide many new opportunities for businesses.
For EVCPs we are accredited by two manufacturers, EV Box and Rolec. EV Box is a great choice for very high IP (water and dust) and IK (impact) ratings. Rolec is a UK based manufacturer with a long history and track record and is the ideal choice for workplace applications.
A recent adopter of workplace EVCPs is Hymec Aerospace, for whom IU Energy has recently fitted two charging points. Hymec cite their increasing number of employees who are purchasing EVs as a reason for piloting a scheme, and the wish to offer the facility as a courtesy to visiting customers, who are also arriving in EVs in greater numbers. Their intention is to roll-out further on-site charge points at a later date.
