Guide to elevate EV Chargepoint Installations

NAPIT release new, free guide to elevate Electric Vehicle Chargepoint Installations.

NAPIT’s Technical team have produced a new ‘Top 10 Tips’ Guide to help those installing Electric Vehicle Chargepoints (EVCPs) avoid commonly overlooked errors.

In response to the recent Government funded audit into the installation of Domestic Electric Vehicle Chargepoints (EVCPs) under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme, NAPIT have created a Top 10 Tips leaflet to provide valuable advice to installers of EVCPs. The audits revealed several areas that should be enhanced to enable greater safety and compliance and made a series of useful recommendations to support the installation of EVCPs.

This new Top 10 Tips guide outlines some key areas of focus for installers of EVCPs, and we encourage all those who undertake EVCP installations to take some time to read it as part of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Areas of focus within the guide include how to approach existing electrical installation checks, ensuring the correct earthing of chargepoints, adequacy of supply, how to alert the DNO and labelling and certification requirements.

Commenting on the new guide, Frank Bertie, Chief Technical Officer at NAPIT said: ‘The Audits commissioned by the Office of Zero Emission Vehicles into Domestic Chargepoints outlined several common oversights made by installers that were often quite simple to rectify. In response to the findings, NAPIT’s technical team have created this Top 10 Tips guide to highlight these to installers of EVCP and encourage them to take the advice into consideration for future installs. We hope this guide will enable greater compliance and safety standards as we remain committed to supporting our members and the wider industry enhance their understanding as new technological advancements are made.’
