STOP – Before you dive head in with EV charging points have you considered if these will fit your commercial needs and how you can transition your existing fleet over to EV. Thinking about replacing traditional petrol and diesel cars & vans with EVs in your fleet? Find out which EVs are best suited to your fleet needs with our EV Suitability Assessment.
We can even provide a consultancy service on which vehicles are the best fit for the current services, charging infrastructure requirements and energy requirements for your site. Catalyst have partnered with EV experts and can even arrange for test drives of any EV that is right for your business.
Electric Vehicle Charging Suitability Assessment
Is your business thinking about replacing its traditional petrol and diesel cars & vans with electric vehicles? Find out which EVs are best suited to your fleet needs with our EV Suitability Assessment.
There are several reasons why a business might consider transitioning to electric vehicles (EVs):
> Cost savings: Although the upfront cost of EVs can be higher than traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, they are often less expensive to operate because they have lower fuel and maintenance costs.
> Sustainability: EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions, so they can help a business reduce its carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
> Government incentives: In some cases, governments offer incentives for businesses to switch to EVs, such as tax credits or rebates.
> Improved air quality: EVs emit fewer pollutants than ICE vehicles, which can improve air quality in urban areas.
> Employee benefits: Many employees appreciate the opportunity to drive a newer, more technologically advanced vehicle.
Overall, transitioning to EVs can be a smart business decision, as it can lead to cost savings, increased sustainability, and improved employee satisfaction. It’s important to note, however, that the overall environmental impact of an EV depends on how the electricity that powers it is generated. If the electricity is generated from fossil fuels, the EV will still have a carbon footprint, although it will typically be much lower than that of an ICE vehicle. On the other hand, if the electricity is generated from renewable sources, the EV’s carbon footprint can be close to zero.
Which EVs are right for your fleet?
Our EV Suitability Assessment offers recommendations by matching your existing fleet telematics data to real world EV performance data.
Find out which vehicles meet your range requirements, make the most financial sense, and help make your transition as seamless as possible to EV.
Our consultants analyses your fleet’s telematics data over a period of 1 to 3 months, and creates an electrification recommendation based on each vehicle’s distinctive driving patterns.
The recommendation takes into consideration available EVs in the local market, EV performance in extreme weather conditions, as well as the financials related to procuring the EVs.
Electric Car Charging Points – Cost Analysis
Will going electric actually save you money and, if so, how much? Determine how your cost structure may change. Compare the scenario of replacing your vehicles with EVs to the scenario of replacing them with brand new non-EVs.
EV Range Assurance
> Find out which commercial EVs in the market meet your fleet’s requirements.
> Does the vehicle meet your drivers’ range requirements?
> Is an overnight charge enough?
> Will the battery still cover your required range in extreme weather conditions?
Best EV Fit Analysis – Identify which of your vehicles are the best candidates for replacement by EVs. Analysis includes vehicle type, range capability and full projected savings.
Environmental Impact – Insight into how much your fleet can reduce CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

electric car charging points for business
With an estimated 1-3 Million EV charging sockets expected on industrial and commercial sites by 2040, its easy to understand the growing demand for business EV charging solutions.
It is estimated that this increase in demand for commercial EV charging points will add an addition 11-15 TWh to UK requirements.
Despite this demand you maybe be surprised to understand that some traditional charge points don’t have MID approved metering as standard and as such direct access to charge point data is difficult to obtain.
All of our solutions our MID approved and are open protocol meaning you can change network provider if required at the end of the initial contract term.
All of our electric car charging points come with ability to collect consumption data, as this is an area that is often overlooked.
Site Survey for Electric Car Charging Points
Conducting a review of your current and future electric vehicle requirements with a company’s fleet and energy managers is often the best place to start before even thinking about a site survey. Our consultative approach guides you through some of the considerations that you need to have and agree on a short-, medium- and long-term strategy.
You need to define who will use the charging points, will they solely be for existing commercial fleet, staff, or even publicly available charging access points.
How many charging points to you need today and what provisions need to be in place for future requirements?
What tariff structure do you want to have in place? Will charging be free for staff, or subsidised. What will you charge for visitors or the public?
All of this is before you even calculate the available demand on site, or the impact charging points may have on future load requirements.
