At Feníe Energía we believe in and are committed to electric vehicles, and so in April 2014 we, together with Renault, launched the “100% Electric Experience”, a project in which our energy agents travelled around Spain with a Renault Kangoo ZE vehicle. Would you like to learn about their experiences and opinions of electric mobility?
We provide advice when purchasing and install the charging point at your home
We understand your specific needs, and can therefore advise you on your purchase and perform the installation of the charging point best suited to your enterprise’s needs.
Fenie Energía offers the charging manager service for any companies and urban locations so requiring.
The charging manager for the system is a commercial energy charging service company which, as a consumer, is entitled to resell electrical energy for vehicle energy charging services.
As charging managers we handle all aspects connected with the installation, maintenance, customer management and invoicing of charging points needing these requirements. Our integrated charging management service, which offers the following:
Many electric vehicle users wonder whether they need to install a charging point when they purchase their electric vehicle. Firstly, we recommend installing a charging point for reasons of safety, both to protect your car and yourself in the event of possible faults in the power line. Meanwhile, a charging point is needed in order to comply with the current low-voltage electrical installation regulations. Furthermore, if you want to charge your vehicle in under 10 hours you will need a specific electric vehicle connector.
At Fenie Energía, we offer personal consultancy to recommend the best charging solution depending on your electric vehicle, its location and the charging times. We also advise you on the most appropriate electricity tariff!
The vehicle battery charging time depends essentially on two factors: the battery capacity and the charging power.
For a vehicle with a range of approximately 150 km, we would be looking at the following charging times:
|Normal charge||Semi-rapid charge||Fast charge|
|Maximum voltage||230 V single phase||400 V three-phase||500 V DC|
|Maximum current||16 A||32 A||32 A||63 A||125 A|
|Maximum power||3,7 kW||7,4 kW||21 kW||43 kW||50 kW|
|Connector||Type 1, Type 2, Schuko||Type 1 and Type 2||Type 2||Type 2||CHAdeMO, Combo|
|Location||Houses, private garages…||Shopping centres, public streets…||Strategic Highway points|
|Hours*||8 h||4 h 30 min||1 h 30 min||45 min||30 min|
* These values may change slightly depending on the battery capacity and the vehicle.
The charging cost will depend on the tariff contracted with the electricity company, the battery capacity and the power used for it.
If you use a charging point connected to your home consumption and have contracted the 2.0 DHS or super-trough tariff from Fenie Energía, then the cost to cover around 100 km is €1.12.
0.065070€/kWh (FE energy price at super-trough tariff (2.0DHS)) x 17.3kWh/100km (consumption of a Nissan Leaf)
Meanwhile, if you regularly charge at public car parks in town, it will depend on whether the charging point is managed by a charging manager, and the tariffs in place. The price is typically quite a lot higher than charging at home.
There is currently a grants plan, the MOVEA 2016 Programme, regulating the direct awarding of grants for the purchase of electric vehicles. Applications may be submitted up until 15 October 2016, or until the available budget has been used up, if this occurs first. Further information is available by clicking here.
It is very easy to tell an electric vehicle, although they often pass by unnoticed. Firstly, they are silent to drive. Meanwhile, they have no exhaust pipe as they are completely clean. And in case you still have doubts, the Directorate-General Traffic identifies “zero local emissions” vehicles with a logo:
