NHP’s EV distribution boards help comply with the NCC
NHP’s range of electric vehicle distribution boards (EV DB) will help electricians comply with the National Construction Code (NCC) as the adoption of EVs continues to rapidly gain momentum.
The NCC 2022 stipulates that a dedicated EV DB is required for new buildings and a certain percentage of parking spaces in developments and significant renovations to be equipped with EV charging points.
A dedicated EV DB is designed to handle the unique electrical demands of multiple EV chargers simultaneously. It ensures a seamless and optimised charging experience for EV users while preventing overloads and electrical hazards.
As the number of EVs on our roads increases, load management becomes a critical aspect of EV charging infrastructure. Load management refers to the strategic control of the electricity demand to prevent grid overloads and power supply issues. It ensures that EVs can be charged efficiently without putting undue stress on the electrical grid.
New buildings and renovations should employ load management strategies such as smart charging and demand-response technologies to stagger the charging times of multiple EVs. By doing so, users can avoid peak demand spikes, maximise the utilisation of renewable energy sources and minimise electricity costs for EV owners.
NHP offers a range of Delta EV chargers from the basic 7kW AC option to the 350kW ultra-fast charging option. Its team of dedicated engineers has also developed in-house solutions to meet local changing EV infrastructure needs, including NCC-compliant EV DBs, the NHP Load Management System and EV readiness site assessment services.
