Is your marina ready for EV customers? ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT Recent figures published by the UK Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) highlighted an increase in Electric Vehicle (EV) and Plug- In Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV) sales of 72.7% in May 2018 alone. This contrasts sharply with the decrease in diesel vehicle sales, which fell by 23.6% in the same month. Marina services specialist Rolec Services, swift to recognise the importance of the EV market some eight years ago, offers equipment - and advice. Rolec’s sub-division, Rolec EV, claimed to be the UK’s largest manufacturer of EV charging equipment, offering Europe’s widest range of products, has sold over 95,000 charging points to date. There is increasing demand in the marina sector. Holly Brown, Rolec operations director, explains: “The number of EVs/PHEVs populating the world’s roads continues to increase at a huge rate. The EV drivers visiting marinas generally park the vehicle in the marina car park, and as such will be looking to charge the vehicle while they are boating. Therefore, having EV charging points available at marinas seems the logical thing to do.” According to Brown, Rolec has developed a range of EV charging solutions to suit any marina or car park requirements, from simple freeto-charge pedestals through to more sophisticated charging points offering a pay by mobile phone experience. In addition to the more traditional AC fast charging units the company also offers a range of cutting edge DC rapid and ultrafast chargers that can charge a vehicle in 15 minutes at up to 150kW, enabling it to travel in some cases up to 300 miles (480km) until the next charge. “According to a recent report by the International Energy Agency, the number of EVs on the world’s roads is likely to more than triple to 13 million in the next 18 months,” Brown reveals. “Sales are also expected to be set to soar 24% every year, on average, through to 2030.” “With environmental issues, including air quality, greenhouse gases, etc. being at the forefront of people’s minds, governments around the world are investing heavily – including providing subsidies to encourage the uptake of EVs/PHEVs. Further investment from governments includes financial support to develop national EV charging infrastructures in domestic, commercial and public locations,” she notes. “It is precisely because of all the positives EVs bring that pioneering marinas throughout the world are investing in EV charging points for their staff, visitors and customers.” According to Rolec, as well as providing a service to marina customers the deployment of EV - July/August 2018 25
