Electric vehicle recharging infrastructure in a private company car park by Schneider Electric
The development of electric vehicles presents a new trend in transportation. Employers providing car park for their employees will most certainly have to manage their need to charge their vehicles after coming to work. A service that may be provided by the company, simply by installing electric vehicle charging terminals in company car parks.
This service can be provided to employees in a variety of ways, including making it freely available and without user identification. User identification is also possible if required by law, including invoicing users for this service for example.
Identification without payment
The free-standing terminal reads the badge authorising access to the socket.
Identification with payment
The free-standing terminal reads the user's card and queries the server. When charging authorisation is granted, the socket is released and charging is authorised. Use of the service is sent to the server which checks the user's privilege.
Thanks to our offer, electric vehicle owners are able to easily and safely charge their vehicles, without any risk of exceeding their supply contract and in the most ecological manner.
