Charging Your Energica Electric Motorcycle
In This Guide
Charging your Electric Vehicle (EV) is an important aspect of your new electric motorcycle journey. We will go through different ways that you can charge in order to make sure that you are getting the most out of your new bike.
There are many different charging solutions available in the UK; each solution caters to a different lifestyle from Home Charging, Public Charging, and Charging at work to the different charging speeds and charging adapters that you can use with your new Energica.
Energica Motor Company is the only electric motorcycle manufacturer to join the CharIN EV Association.
The primary aims of CharIN E.V are:
- To develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles of all kinds
- To draw up requirements for the evolution of charging-related standards and develop a certification system for use by manufacturers implementing the CCS in their products
- To promote the CCS standard worldwide
CSS is a DC Fast Charging technology allowing you to charge at home using a type 2 charging unit, and in public using a CSS charging station.
Given that your bike will usually be parked overnight, most electric motorcycle owners will rely on home charging to ensure that their bike is powered up ready for when they need them. Although home charging is convenient, it also has the added benefit of being the cheapest option to recharge in most cases.
The government provide a financial support scheme for EV adopters who want to install a home charger. This is called the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), the EVHS covers a proportion of the total costs to get the charger installed.
