Project Brief 

As Nissan Ireland’s appointed Electric Mobility Operator here in Ireland, eStation were tasked with providing a comprehensive EV Charging solution for their headquarters office located at Parkwest, Dublin. Integral to the brief was an interface to their extensive solar array, installed on the rooftop of their office.

eStation was tasked with creating a cost effective and scalable solution by incorporating the following key objectives:

  • Assess EV Charging infrastructure requirements necessary to meet the needs of employees whilst at work.
  • Design a solution that can initially manage current demand, but also be easily expandable to meet future needs.
  • Determine best combination of charging output characteristics to serve the needs of EV driving employees.
  • Ensure a simple, clear and efficient user experience.

Our Solution 

Firstly, we analysed the EV drivers, their typical driving habits and their charging requirements. From that we could profile the likely blend EV Charger output types. Lastly, we needed to understand the available electrical infrastructure at the Nissan offices, both solar and utility supply, and the type of charging equipment it could support.

By interfacing with the solar supply, combined with Dynamic Load Management and user diversity, we designed a Work Charging solution that was both cost effective and minimized electrical upgrade requirements.
