Electric cars as a company car are on the rise: Meanwhile, every third Eauto is a company car. From a corporate perspective, in addition to low emissions, certainly promotions, grants and tax relief for an entry into the electromobility. By 2022, 56% of all German fleet operators plan to electrify their corporate fleet. Both companies as well as employees benefit.

The boom of electromobility brings many advantages and opportunities in terms of sustainability and future security for companies. To ensure the operational readiness of the Eflotte, many companies set on their own charging options at the company location. This makes the electric fleet efficient, independent and flexible. Another important advantage of corporate charging infrastructure is the high cost-effectiveness and varied possibilities for controlling and individual adaptation.

With an intelligent charging solution, the loading behavior of the users can be viewed and managed at any time. The operator – the company – can even decide on loading rates and so different user groups, such as employees or guests, have to be charged to predefined prices.

It needs nationwide and user-friendly charging solutions: Services at home Loading as a key factor

In order for the step towards clean mobility to succeed, the emobility must be found as a daily type in the life of users, ie the drivers,. For this it needs user-friendly charging solutions in places with high service life. In addition to charging options in operation, the charging stations at home are the key.

For a large part of the charging processes takes place at the employees at home: whether during the service life overnight or in the home office. A charging station at the residential building guarantees a fully charged vehicle and makes users regardless of public charging stations. Loading the vehicle on a household socket is not advisable because it takes a long time and high safety concerns. Therefore, wallboxes make sense, which are also equipped with intelligent software. These work with established safety standards for no overloading of the building.

In summary, to establish emigrety as a straightforward element in everyday life of the employees, it needs transparent and automated concepts that can be easily and flexibly applicable both for companies and employees.

Profitable for companies and employees

An intelligent charging station is the answer to these requirements. It enables the exact acquisition of charging processes and the resulting KWh consumption. In this way, no more meter readings need to be measured, whereby resources saves and can be prevented by possible sources of error. In addition, the automation of charging stations offers security and transparency – on the part of the company and the employees.

Another advantage is the simple billing: power consumption and costs can be submitted at the end of the month by receipt by the employer. It is also important that billing is legally safe. By authentication options and the separate collection of costs and consumption, several people from the household can be charged without problems at the domestic stations, even without being part of the company. So for example, partners.

The provision of the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles at employees at home offers companies, on the one hand, the opportunity to shape the change to sustainable mobility and thus make the emobility better usable in everyday life. On the other hand, by increasing charging comfort and additional charging options, the efficiency and operational readiness of their own Eflotte can be increased. The company image is consolidated and the attractiveness for potential employees increased immensely.

Financing the charging station

Last but not least, the question of financing is. In principle, these should be individually tailored between the company car drivers and the employer. Either the employee or employer carries the acquisition costs.

When financing by the employer, this can leave the charging station tax-free for its employees for the duration of the employment relationship. The costs are taken over by the company and the charging station remains in their possession. However, workers can take over the cost of the charging station. The employer can additionally subsidize the private financing.

  1. OK. Open question: What does that look like this, if I settle the KWh at the end of the month with my employer? Theoretically, I will do this for the electricity supplier for my employer? This is rather the crucial question I am now. The topic with wallbox with built-in counter, etc. is irrelevant. This will have both employers and workers quickly on the screen.

    PS: What should now hinder me there’s still my private electric car there and with anyway with my RFID card or to identify on the wallbox? Theoretically, the ID of the vehicle would have to be recorded in the billing. Then I can also on an RFID laser or similar whistle.

  2. The problem from the employer’s point of view at home at home:

    If the employee invites the employer, the employer is de facto paying the electricity price without VAT.

    If the employee invites at home, then the employee gets the electricity price incl. VAT. replaced by the employer and the employer has no opportunity (in my view). To reimburse somewhere.

    Therefore (with the same electric price) the loading at the employee at home for the employer 19% more expensive.


  3. Easy problems complicated inflating is always extremely targetable and leads to the innovation covered. Together with direct innovation developers at the German car roders, this opens up catastrophic future opportunities. But Lastlch shows such topics as well as desperately looking for negative arguments. Just do it – the climate to love would also be an important economic factor. More important than about VAT. to debate the electricity charge.

  4. The topic is one of the main reasons for the bad reputation of PHEV. I would not unpack the charging cable if I had to charge my company car at your own expense, but at the same time have a fuel card. The framework conditions should be tightened and prescribed before granting PHEV special conditions in taxation.
