The benefits for the medium and long term car parks are numerous. From improving utilisation rates to generating additional revenue over and above the parking fee, Wattif EV can help car park owners or landlords get ahead in terms of planning and roll-out of an electrical charging infrastructure.
Having EV chargers in car parks, both long and short stay, will attract EV users to the car parks knowing they have the option to charge and park. This destination charging will also help utilisation rates as the demand for EV charger-dedicated spaces increases over time, Wattif EV’s phased solution can adapt accordingly.
Wattif EV offers a flexible finance and ownership solution whereby car parks can opt to wholly own (100% funded by Wattif EV), partially own (50:50) or choose a software and operations-only package. All these options include lifetime ownership costs as well as operations, maintenance and reporting and can be independent of site or location.
Planning and Installation Resource
Wattif EV has a network of installation, commission, service support, remote technical and bureau reporting services. These facilities are provided as part of the package, allowing the car park to focus on other priority areas where it has more expertise.
Wattif EV has built the whole lifecycle costs of ownership and operation into its packages ensuring no hidden costs for a pre-agreed duration. This allows car parks to better plan and budget for the rollout and future running costs of its EV charger infrastructure.
Specialist Knowledge and Expertise
Wattif EV has the specialist know-how and expertise required to plan, install, run and maintain the EV chargers. With its flexible packages, Wattif EV can also use a car park owner’s existing supply chain for the installation and ground works, and provide training for engineers if required.
As the demand for EV chargers increases in line with the use of EV cars and vans, our solution is flexible and can grow accordingly. Individual car parks don’t need to project demand for a one-off delivery or solution, as Wattif EV can expand its infrastructure over time, to meet requirements.
Slow or ‘destination charging’ allows a lower electrical draw on the existing infrastructure. This means that car parks can adopt a charging strategy and roll out EV chargers within its business earlier than predicted. In turn, this means that profits will be generated sooner and can be reinvested into developing the infrastructure further if required.
Depending on the car park landlord’s procurement and ownership strategy, it can choose to own outright, part own or have use of, EV chargers as per the agreement thanks to Wattif EV’s flexible finance and ownership packages. These can differ according to location or site enabling car park groups to have a more flexible approach.
Wattif EV’s funding model enables firms to benefit from EV infrastructure cost avoidance, allowing them to deliver other priorities simultaneously. By adopting this EV charger strategy early, they will also be able to meet OZEV and net zero targets sooner.
Allowing Wattif EV to be a partner in a car park owner’s EV charger infrastructure will only facilitate and precipitate the achievement of transportation goals and its strategy.
Air Quality Strategy
The early adoption of an EV charger infrastructure will facilitate the transition to EVs and ultimately, the achievement of air quality objectives the car park may have.
Allowing Wattif EV to be a partner in a car park’s EV charger infrastructure will only facilitate and precipitate the achievement of mobility goals and its strategy.
Promoting EV mobility within the business, will provide the necessary infrastructure to accelerate the transition to EVs and achieve the decarbonisation goals for the car park and its employees.
Climate and Sustainability Goals
Wattif EV’s flexible solutions will aid the rollout of a successful EV strategy, ultimately driving a positive result towards the achievement of climate and sustainability goals.
Net Zero Targets
By having the appropriate infrastructure in place, a car park will be better placed to achieve its net zero carbon targets, whilst also promoting EV mobility within the business.
A car park with a developed EV infrastructure will be much better placed to support local OZEV strategies, attract users and generate a revenue stream of its own.
Wattif EV’s flexible packages enable car parks to claim up to 80% of the profit dependent on the finance option chosen for a specific site and/or phase.
Reduction in Carbon Emissions
The early adoption of an EV infrastructure will encourage EV transition and help a car park achieve its carbon emission target.
Providing EV chargers at car park sites can provide charging solutions for guests, for employees during working hours and overnight/weekend solutions for fleet or pool cars and vans.
Employees with company EV cars can charge their cars at their place of work, encouraging them to opt-in to the scheme and choose a cost effective EV vehicle over a traditional ICE car.
With the Wattif EV data and utilisation reporting suite, the car park owners can make informed decisions relating to future targets and expansion of the EVC network at each location and by package type.
As the Wattif EV software isn’t dependent on a specific make or model of charging hardware, it is resilient to changes in technology, therefore futureproofing a car park’s investment and EVC strategy.
By focusing primarily on slow charging facilities (fast chargers are also an option), Wattif EV helps to lower the electrical draw on existing infrastructure, allowing companies to roll out an EVC solution quickly and efficiently.
Building the car park’s Economy
By having an EVC infrastructure in place, a car park will make its venue more appealing to EV users countrywide, bringing footfall and revenue.
Adding Value to Asset
Offering EVC on a site for existing and new business users will make the facility more desirable, maintaining or improving revenues and adding overall value to the asset.
By having EV charging stations at the car park location at this stage of EV adoption, will help provide a USP over its competitors and make it more attractive to both visitors and corporate users.
Building the Local Economy
By having an EVC infrastructure in place, a car park will help make an area more appealing to EV users, bringing footfall and revenue and ultimately enabling local businesses to thrive.
