Electric vehiclesProject ENGIE Future Fuels Public Fast Charging
This is the second lessons learnt report from the IPAH Client Solutions Pty Ltd (Engie) Future Fuels Public Fast Charging project. It provides insights on the technical and economic lessons learnt, and challenges related to the projects.
There is currently no unified standard in Australia for metering of DC EV Charging Systems (EVCS). The application of metering for EVCS has also been inconsistently applied by site managers and across different site electrical networks. This situation has led ENGIE to reassess and rationalise its application of metering for DC EVCS.
EV charging equipment manufacturers selected for the Future Fuels Program have incorporated MID metering equipment into the EVCS (to comply with European jurisdiction where MID metering is required for revenue metering). ENGIE understands there is currently no requirement for NMI pattern and verification of metering in the EVCS. That said, it is understood NMI is currently considering the trade (revenue) measurement policy for EVCS going forward. This may include the alignment of policy with OMIL standards (which governs the MID certification).
