Frequently asked questions
Having a workplace EV charging policy is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended. A workplace EV charging policy is a set of guidelines that regulate the use of charge points at a business premise. This gives employees a point of reference for how and when they can use the charge points on site. You could include topics such as charging prices, charging times and who to contact if there’s an issue with the hardware.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) cards are a form of wireless communication that have multiple uses, including paying for electricity at charge points. All you need to do is tap your RFID card on the charger to begin a session, as the card contains unique data that is transmitted to the charge point, allowing it to identify the user and begin the charging process. These can also be used to control who can use your charge points. For example, only employees with RFID cards would be able to use your workplace charge points.
Typically, you do not need planning permission to install EV chargers, unless your workplace is a listed building. In addition, if a local authority or third-party landlord owns your parking bays, permission will be required.
