Quality feature in France
The E.V. Ready certification mark is an important quality feature for charging stations in France. It provides answers to the questions of interoperability, security and performance for electrical and hybrid rechargeable vehicle charging stations. The E.V. Ready certification mark was elaborated by different stakeholders such as automotive manufacturers, installers, utilities and other suppliers under the lead of Renault and Nissan.
As an applicant for the E.V. Ready mark, KEBA had to undergo a complex certification process as well as a factory inspection by the approval authority Asefa.
Part of the "Livre Vert"
The E.V. Ready mark is also part of the „Livre Vert“ (also called Greenbook) which is a guidance for E.V. charging infrastructure published by the French government. It regulates the fulfillment of installation standards and communication norms and the “E.V. 1.4 Ready” certificate of charging stations.

AC and DC? Single-Phase and 3-Phase Charging?
If you want to drive an e-car or a plug-in hybrid, you have to deal with the subject of charging. You’ll quickly come across terms like alternating and direct current, single-phase and 3-phase charging. But what do they mean and how do these concepts influence the way you charge your vehicle? Here’s a summary of the most important points.
"Urcharge" project examines crucial questions about the viability of e-mobility for everyday use
One of the largest and longest electric mobility field tests in Austrian history starts tomorrow. For the project "Urcharge" (Urban Charging) 51 households in a Linz residential complex will be exchanging their fuel car for an electric car including their own KEBA charging station, which is integrated into the Linz AG charging solution "WallBOX CitySolution". It will provide answers to fundamental questions about what infrastructure and charging behaviour is needed in order to make the day-to-day use of e-mobility a decisive environmental protection factor in urban areas, even for densely populated areas. The start of the project had been postponed due to Corona - now the project gets underway.
Charging the company car at home – this is how the billing works
Electric cars are increasingly the first choice for a company’s vehicle fleet. To make the best use of them, drivers should charge them at home – the electric vehicle can park overnight and thus refuel in the most economic way. To pass on that part of the electricity bill to the employer, there are various options.
