WHAT IS A SMART EV CHARGER?

The UK Government is leading the way to ensure that EV charging points are Smart. As per the government definitions published on 14 December 2018, this means charge points must be able to be remotely accessed, and capable of receiving, interpreting and reacting to a signal.


Smart EV chargers can also reduce high peaks of electricity demands, minimising the charging of electric vehicles at peak electricity times, thus keeping costs down for consumers by encouraging off-peak charging.


All UK government funded home charge points (OLEV Grant) for EV's must use innovative ‘Smart’ technology from July 2019, to help fulfil the commitment to Zero emissions.


All iAcharger’s for Home and Workplace installations come as standard with “intelligent access”. We believe in providing the best future proofed charging solutions on the market.
