Electric car charger has become a must in new houses!

There is a mushrooming of electric car chargers around newly built properties – some where standard equipment is standard at all car parks. Moreover, as of January 1, 2022, the construction of chargers in new buildings is already required by law.

Electric cars are spreading explosively throughout Europe, and records on e-vehicle numbers are falling in Hungary as well. Thus, it is no wonder that from January 1, 2022, the construction of chargers in new buildings will be required by law. However, Metrodom is a good big step forward: in the residential parks to be built after 2021, individual electric car chargers will be built as standard equipment for all car parks.

According to the latest data from the CSO, while the newly marketed cars were somewhat affected by the coronavirus epidemic, partly due to the shortage of raw materials hindering vehicle production worldwide, the pandemic was not felt at all in electric cars.

In Hungary, the increase in the number of green-numbered vehicles was unbroken: between January and September 2021, 62 percent more of them were placed on the market, approximately 4,800 more than a year earlier. At the end of October, there were already 38,753 and by the last day of November 40,545 environmentally friendly vehicles on Hungarian roads, and more and more are owned by private individuals.

Kia e-Nirora, which has become the most popular model, for example, was contracted by 43 per cent natural persons, but there was also a model, the Renault Zoé, which was 70 per cent bought by private individuals.
At the same time, the number of public chargers in Hungary has increased significantly in the recent period, and the number of unchecked home chargers may be several times higher than the number of licensed chargers.

Also in response to the explosive growth of e-vehicles is the TNM Decree, effective January 1, 2022, which now requires the installation of an electric car charger or the preparation of a subsequent charging installation in all newly constructed – and refurbished – buildings.

However, Metrodom is well ahead of the standards, having already exceeded it last year before the legislation was introduced: a separate electric car charger will be built as standard in every car park launched in 2021 and beyond (Metrodom River, Metrodom Green). This means that from now on there will be no set-up in these buildings at all that is optimized exclusively for cars with internal combustion engines. Although no record is kept of non-public (home) e-car chargers, their number is estimated at 8-10 thousand at a conservative estimate, 860 at Metrodom River and 375 at Metrodom Green, so the investment will result in more than 1,200 The stock of non-public chargers in Hungary is expanding by.

“With this solution, charging electric cars will be much easier, more convenient and cheaper, which will greatly help zero-emission electric cars to spread and become widespread in those parts of the city where they are currently used as efficiently as possible and where improving air quality is paramount. ”Said Tamás Kricsfalussy, Sales Director of Metrodom. He also added that residential parks and driveways will become more viable, as it will be virtually forbidden to place new cars with internal combustion engines on the market after 2035, so the demand for self-charging city driveways will increase exponentially, which is expected to become a home purchase. .

About the investment

Improvements include the installation of a 32A high-performance electrical network and an electric charging box with an integrated meter, which are extremely easy to use and completely user-friendly. Simply connect the charging cable to the vehicle and then start charging with the unique ID – this prevents unauthorized power from others. In other words, a separate charger can only be used by the car in the given parking lot – the owner or tenant of the parking lot. However, this is also controlled by the cable length. The maximum capacity of the chargers is 7.2 kWh, with which the battery of a currently available, average electric car (eg Opel Corsa, Peugeot 208) can be fully charged in 8-10 hours from a fully discharged state. The chargers installed in the garages form a unified system, the monitoring of which and the proper distribution of the available electricity are ensured by a central charging management system. The electricity consumption associated with charging is accounted for by the condominium and billed to each owner.
