Electric Vehicle Charging Simplified With Recyclable Universal Solution

Newly launched, these 100% recyclable blocks claim to reduce disruption during the installation of electric car charging stations. They are also universal to different electric vehicle chargers on the market.

With the UK Government’s target of banning the sale of petrol, diesel and hybrid cars by 2035, the need for electric vehicle charging stations is set to rise dramatically.

Currently, commercial electric charging points can be costly and time-consuming to install. Customers face all sorts of disruption: holes have to be dug, cement made, poured and left to dry and stations installed. There’s also the added disruption caused by EV charging manufacturers changing fixing arrangements from one model to another.  


EV Blocks set to make electric vehicle charging "simpler"


It was from these problems that EV Blocks were designed. By having a universal adaptor plate (patent pending) for the blocks, installation of electric vehicle charging stations and changing charging points are simplified.

This universal plate technology allows for projects to commence before chargers have been specified or even selected. This also means that blocks can be installed for futureproofing installations at civil works stage.

The blocks can be installed in any weather conditions, thus reducing time and lost productivity.

EV Blocks founder, Trevor Palmer said: “It’s great to be part of such a fast-moving industry, innovation is key to stay ahead as more and more EV charger manufactures and installers enter the marketplace”

EV Blocks are made in Britain and are a 100% recyclable, a pre-cast solution to meet the increasing demand for electric vehicle charging point infrastructure before 2035.
