Axis takes care to consider how our client’s EV charging points can be future-proofed in order to reduce waste and save energy and costs in the long term. Having the ability to upgrade charging points is key, and we working closely with our clients to consider if and how their charging points can be upgraded, easily replaced and whether their systems are modular or multifunctional.
If clients decide to offer the maximum number of charging points on their available design, we’ll need to install a load management system. This works to ensure the cumulative load never exceeds the supply. Even where it is not necessary to install a charge point at every bay, we propose doing so at as many available bays as possible to enable future adaptations and upgraded without problems. The plan defines “active” (an actual socket connected to the supply system) and “passive” (a network of cables and power supply so that a socket can be added easily).
