The Italian-based company launched its new range of electric vehicle (EV) solutions globally in late 2020. The OZEV certification means that the Fimer Flexa AC Wallbox is now on the Approved Chargepoint List for both workplace and domestic use in the UK. This also makes it eligible for the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), a grant that provides a 75 percent contribution – up to £350 - towards the cost of one chargepoint and its installation.

Designed for use in residential, public and commercial applications, the Fimer Flexa AC is a wall or stand mounted charger, which is available in three different models: Stand Alone, Future Net and Inverter Net. Each model has four possible configurations (3.7, 7.4, 11 and 22 kW) and two connections options - either with a T2 or T3 socket or a T2 cord - meaning it is suitable for a variety of price points and both single and multiple installations. Depending on the model, the chargepoints can also integrate with additional systems, such as solar PV and storage.

Fimer has also applied to have the rest of its EV portfolio OZEV certified, including its Flexa AC charging station, which can charge up to two vehicles at the same time and is ideal for use in public places, and its next-generation Fimer Electra rapid-charging DC station. When these approved, Fimer is expecting to be able to offer one of the most comprehensive portfolios of EV charging solutions on the UK market.

“The UK is a key market in Fimer’s wider EV growth strategy” said Nagla Kirkpatrick, EVI account manager at Fimer in the UK. “The UK government’s plans to drastically increase electrification as part of its net zero ambition are driving growing demand for EVs, with the latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) showing that plug-in and hybrid EVs now account for more than a quarter - 25.7 percent - of the new car market. However, with research from the UK100 revealing that there could be a severe shortage of public charging points to meet demand – it estimates that 325,000 will be needed by 2032 and there are currently just over 24,000 in operation – there is a need for a new, high-quality solution, which is what the Fimer Flexa AC Wallbox provides.”

To further contribute to overall sustainability of the solution, the Fimer Flexa AC Wallbox is made from 100 percent recycled plastic, making the solution functional, reliable, safe, flexible, and environmentally friendly.
