Our charging stations
Our charging station with a single outlet or fixed cable is the best selling model in the Nordics and was recently crowned the winner of comprehensive tests in both Germany and Austria. A compact design means it can fit in most garages. Models with a Type 2 outlet can be used by anyone who has their own Mode 3 cable. All stations can be integrated into new and existing facilities.
eRange Duo is built on the same technology as eRange Uno, but has two outlets and a different exterior. eRange Duo may enable you to reduce the number of stations you install, lowering both the initial investment and maintenance costs. It can be used with all cars, provided that users have their own Mode 3 cables. eRange Duo may be integrated into larger facilities.
Smart power distribution
Optimized use of available power
To ensure that all residents can charge efficiently and fairly, most housing cooperatives need a solution for dynamic load balancing of the available power. Our solution for dynamic load balancing is called CLU and comes in two versions; CLU Basic, which is connected to the CloudCharge administration system via cable, and CLU Online, which is connected wirelessly. Both versions can control up to 16 stations/charging points.
Efficient, fair & 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 & payment made easy
Get full control over consumption & 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 can be forwarded to third parties.

Fossum Terrasse is one of Norway’s largest housing cooperatives with more than 400 housing units. As in most other housing cooperatives, the electrical installation was not originally intended for EV charging. However, with a dynamic load balancing solution, all of the 100 EV owners are still able to charge efficiently, without having to wait. The available power is distributed evenly to all connected cars by CLU units.
