Regulation changes

All government funded home chargepoints for electric vehicles must use innovative ‘smart’ technology from July 2019, fulfilling the commitment in the Road to Zero Strategy published earlier this year.

This means charge points must be able to be remotely accessed, and capable of receiving, interpreting and reacting to a signal. Smart charging can also reduce high peaks of electricity demands, minimising the cost of electric vehicles to the electricity system – and keeping costs down for consumers by encouraging off-peak charging.
