Compleo Charging Solutions UK installs electric vehicle (EV) chargers at the Faraday Institution

Compleo Charging Solutions UK, a provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging hardware and software solutions based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, has helped fellow Oxfordshire-based research organisation, the Faraday Institution, install EV chargers for its staff, its pool car and visitors.

Compleo is a leading manufacturer of cutting-edge AC and DC charging stations and high-performing software services. It offers a wide range of EV charging stations for residential, public and workplace applications.

Across Europe, the company has supplied more than 135,000 electric vehicle charging stations and has in excess of 200,000 points connected to its backend. Compleo is currently working with over 100 major corporate customers, with a European team of 600 employees across Germany, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

Compleo has installed fast-charging, 3 Phase 22kW AC units at the Faraday Institution’s designated parking spaces at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus HQ in Oxfordshire. These have already proved a hit and are being well used by staff and visitors to their site. 

The Faraday Institution is the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage research, skills development, market analysis and early-stage commercialisation. Bringing together expertise from universities and industry, the Faraday Institution endeavours to make the UK the go-to place for the research and development of new electrical storage technologies for both the automotive and wider relevant sectors.

Susan Robertson, Faraday Institution COO, said: “The Compleo EV charging software (eOPERATE) is invaluable to us. It enables our staff, visitors and pool cars to charge reliably using RFID cards while ensuring that speculative visitors to the site can’t plug in and get free electricity.

“A number of staff already own an electric vehicle and many of our employees have a long commute. Without reliable access to charge points when using their EV for work would be inconvenient for some. 

“Providing the new charging infrastructure has been popular with staff, and doing so, has removed a barrier for the uptake of EVs for our employees – important for us as the UK’s independent institute for battery energy storage research.”

Compleo’s electric vehicle charging software, eOperate, allows users to set tariffs, opening hours and restrict charging to registered users only. 

Valentin Scheltow, Compleo UK CEO, said: “We’re really proud to have our head office in Oxfordshire and working with other local businesses, especially one as renowned as the Faraday Institution, is a privilege for us at Compleo. 

“Our mission is to help make emobility and electric vehicle charging available for everyone when they park at home, work and leisure.”
