EV charging in housing cooperativesMarket-leading solutions
All housing cooperatives have their own requirements. As the leading provider of charging solutions in the Nordics, we have the experience, expertise and products needed to create the ideal solution for your needs.
Find the right solution:
What are your needs - today and in the future?
Finding a solution with the right balance between needs, costs, fairness, and opportunities for future upgrades is not always easy. We have the expertise, products and services needed to help you find it.
What are the possibilities and limitations?
Most housing cooperatives have electrical installations with limited capacity left over for charging. We offer solutions for dynamic load balancing that ensures efficient charging by optimizing the use of the available power.
Will costs and power be distributed fairly?
Fairness is crucial. Our solution for dynamic load balancing works both offline and online and distributes the available power evenly to all connected cars. Each resident can quickly pay for their consumption.
How little administration do you want?
A charging facility shouldn’t have to mean an added workload for those on the board. Our flexible administration system CloudCharge provides a simple way to monitor consumption, control access, and more.
How do you provide a solution anyone can use?
A good charging facility should be easy to use. Our test-winning charging stations and simple access control and payment solutions allow residents to manage everything on their own, limiting administration for the board.
How can you ensure optimal reliability?
Seemingly simple solutions often become complicated when things no longer work. We are a total solutions provider, meaning that our products and systems are all made for each other, and have uptimes of nearly 100%.

Our charging stations
eRange® Uno is the best selling model in the Nordics and has been crowned the winner of comprehensive tests in both Germany and Austria. It has a single Type 2 outlet for Mode 3 cables and compact design means it can fit in most garages. All stations integrate into new and existing facilities. Our charging stations can all be delivered with MID approved energy meters that ensure accurate measurements of your power consumption.
eRange Duo has the same technology as eRange Uno, but has two Type 2 outlets for Mode 3 cables. eRange Duo may enable you to reduce the number of stations you install, lowering the initial investment and maintenance costs. It can be used with all cars, provided the users have Mode 3 cables. Our charging stations can all be delivered with MID approved energy meters that ensure accurate measurements of your power consumption.
Smart power distribution
Optimized use of available power
Most housing cooperatives need a power distribution solution to ensure that all residents have equal access to power. Our solution for dynamic load balancing is called CLU and comes in two versions; CLU Basic, which connects to the CloudCharge administration system via cable, and CLU Online, which connects wirelessly. Both versions can control up to 16 stations/charging points.
Efficient, fair and immediate charging
CLU units distribute the available power evenly to all connected cars. These are charged at their full capacity as long as there is sufficient available power. As more cars are connected, the available power is distributed evenly to all of them. We scale all our facilities so that all cars start charging at once. In addition to being fair, this is important because some cars might not wake up from sleep mode when it’s time to charge.
Administration and payment made easy
Get full control over consumption and status
Our administration system CloudCharge can be customized for your needs and provides a full overview of consumption and station status. Create flexible reports and get status alerts that you can forward to a third party.
Avoid any work with collection and billing
Using our administration system also gives you the option of connecting to the charging and payment portal EVcloud, completely free of charge. Through EVcloud, each resident can handle their own payments on mobile or PC.
Control who has access to the facility
As facility owners, you can easily control who has access to use each station. This can be done with RFID tags and via the EVcloud portal. Residents can provide family and friends with access to their stations.
