How to Solved the Key Issues Plaguing the Construction of EV Chargers？
As new energy electric vehicles are favored by more and more capital and consumers, the construction speed of charging piles, as the charging infrastructure of new energy vehicles, has become a soft spot for the development of new energy vehicles. The “AC charging at home + fast charging in office/public area” has become the main way to replenish the power of new energy vehicles at home and abroad. Due to the increasingly tight urban electricity load and the number of public parking spaces, the key issues plaguing the construction of charging piles need to be solved in order to realize the large-scale promotion of new energy vehicles.
So, what are the key issues that plague the construction of charging piles?
1.Low Return on Investment
According to the market statistics, the average price of charging pile is 0.5~20,000 RMB/each, and the charging station is 3 million RMB/seat, which means that the cost of purchasing, installing, operating and maintaining the equipment is relatively high, and the only revenue that the charging operator can get is the charging service fee set by the local government, for example, in Shenzhen, the maximum shall not exceed 0.45 RMB/kwh. The cost recovery is generally more than 5 years.
2.Limited Electric Capacity
City buildings park residential buildings, in the early stages of construction planning, did not take into account with the rapid development of the economic level of per capita power consumption of residents of the rapid rise, many old neighborhoods are not enough power capacity, frequent tripping problems with peak electricity consumption, it is difficult to build electric car charging pile such high-power electrical equipment. And power transformation is generally long cycle, coordination and management difficulties, high cost of investment in power distribution equipment, resulting in power expansion is difficult to carry out quickly and effectively, can not meet the electric vehicle owners charging requirements.
3.Complex Coordination Between Piles and Parking Spaces
According to the regulations related to parking space management, most of the parking space resources are not owned by individual owners at present. And the resources of legally planned parking spaces are very tight. Under this circumstance, dividing some parking spaces into dedicated electric vehicle charging spaces will cause considerable disputes. The current non-dedicated model will lead to a large number of parking spaces for building charging piles being occupied by fuel cars, resulting in a serious waste of charging resources and more coordination problems in actual use.
4.Rising Operating Costs
At present, the mainstream charging equipment adopts IC card payment, and the payment and settlement systems are not connected with each other. For the charging operator, in order to ensure good service, more service points and business personnel need to be set up for the opening, recharging and canceling of the charging card, and the operation cost is seriously increased. For electric vehicle owners, they need to hold multiple charging cards in order to charge in multiple places smoothly, which is a poor service experience and brings serious troubles.
For the above four major problems, EN+ Technology combines excellent technical innovation and rich project experience, deeply understands the pain points of customers and market demand, and creates a unique solution for deep integration of parking lots, using the four-in-one “cell phone APP + energy gateway + intelligent charging pile + intelligent parking space lock” to help operators and electric vehicle owners solve the difficult operation and charging problems. It helps operators and electric vehicle owners to solve the problems of difficult operation and charging.
1.Increase Return on Investment
Electric vehicle owners can find charging stations near or at their destinations online through the APP, view the status of electric piles in real time, make reservations and navigate in advance, making it convenient for vehicle owners to find piles for charging while maximizing the efficiency of charging piles. In addition, EN+’s original solution of deep integration of parking lots, based on charging operation, realizes parking space management and parking fee collection through the access of intelligent parking locks, maximizing operation revenue and reducing investment cost recovery cycle.
2.Maximize Electric Capacity
For the problem of difficult to build piles due to limited power capacity, EN+ Technology’s self-developed energy gateway can detect the dynamic remaining capacity of power distribution and charging pile output power in real time, and use energy dispatching to allocate the real-time remaining capacity to charging piles to achieve the maximum utilization of power capacity. In addition, EN+ Technology establishes a systematic cooperation model with energy-saving renovation companies to help customers solve the problem of limited power capacity and make the construction of charging piles more economical and feasible.
3.Coordinated Management of Piles and Parking Spaces
The “Smart Charging Pile + Smart Parking Lock” has the functions of parking space monitoring and locking up, and the smart parking lock automatically locks up when the user makes a reservation for the charging pile through the APP, and the electric vehicle owner can park and charge after the APP unlocks it upon arrival. The program also supports charging parking fees for fuel vehicles that occupy the charging parking space or electric vehicles that occupy the parking space for a long time after charging, realizing real sense of parking space management and intelligent charging. The program does not require the operator’s manual participation and solves the problem of difficult parking space coordination while increasing operating revenue.
4.Reduce Operating Costs
The charging station operation and management platform built by EN+ Technology upholds the value concept of openness and sharing. The platform supports the access of different manufacturers and different models of charging pile equipment, and reserves open interfaces to allow data access and function integration with other management systems. The cloud service architecture supports the integration of different charging pile resources and the formation of a unified big data platform to realize interconnection in the true sense. The platform is equipped with various functions such as monitoring, maintenance, payment, reporting and hierarchical management, realizing charging operation automation and reducing daily management costs of charging operators. At the same time, the open and unified big data application and function integration, and various payment methods (such as IC card payment, WeChat, Alipay, etc.) can effectively improve user experience and reduce operation and management costs.
The above solutions have been patented and widely used in many places in China, and have been well received by charging operations, property management and electric vehicle owners. Accelerate the construction of charging piles, new energy electric vehicles to better meet the future.
