United Kingdom New Regulation Compliant Announcement


author:

The Electric Vehicles (Smart Charge Points) Regulations 2021

 

To meet the ambition of all new cars and vans must be fully zero emission by 2035, the number of electric vehicles operating in Great Britain will increase significantly, in turn increasing demand on the electricity system. So a smarter, more flexible energy system can help manage the increase in electricity demand from the transition to EVs. It will also support the integration of more renewable electricity generation into the energy system.

 

With this back ground, all EV charge points in the UK need to comply with The Electric Vehicles (Smart Charge Points) Regulations 2021 on 30th June 2022, it's meaning that all home and workplace EV charge points need to have smart charging capability from 1st July 2022, and these Regulations extend to England and Wales and Scotland.

The specifics of the new regulations can be summarized as the following points:

 

- Charge points should incorporate pre-set, off peak, default charging hours and allow the owner to accept, remove or change these upon first use and subsequently

 

- Charge points should allow for a randomised delay function

 

- Provide a measuring system, to measure or calculate the electricity imported or exported and the time the charging lasts, with visibility to the owner of this information

 

- Have safety provisions, preventing the user carrying out an operation which could risk the health or safety of a person

 

- Continue charging even if the charge point ceases to be connected to a communications network

 

LINCHR is delighted to announce that our new generation smart charger-H-series is already compliant with the requirements of the new regulations above, so EV drivers who choose the H-Series Smart charger don't need to be concerned about the new regulations.
