  • Transport planning that includes electric taxi’s, electric buses and electric bikes
  • Car sharing schemes that can help reduce the areas carbon footprint
  • Policy guidance of new builds and planning applications

Choosing the right electric car chargers

It is important that you choose the right electric car chargers that can charge at a speed that is suited to a typical dwell time for your location. Below is a rough guide that will help you:

Dwell time
Suggested charger
in kW
Residential parking6 – 10 hours7kW
Residential on-street6 – 10 hours7kW
Hospitality or sports venue2 – 5 hours22kW
Tourist attraction2 – 5 hours22kW
Retail or public car park2 – 5 hours22kW
Retail store1 hour25kW DC +
Service station30 minutes50kW DC +

Use our useful guide to help you understand how quickly different vehicles can charge using different charging solutions.

When transport planning an area, it is important to consider the entire community, in particular chargers for taxi’s and chargers for buses, both of which are going to require very short dwell times whilst operational. Placement of these chargers are also important, bearing in mind the public will find it difficult to use chargers that are continually occupied by high usage vehicles such as taxi’s.

A community approach to implementing chargers for councils as what will make it a long lasting success.
