State of play
Nearly 8,000 electric vehicles will be on the market in 2019, and the horizon of 2024, which will see the disappearance of diesel in Paris and 2040 for the rest of France, is fast approaching. Not to mention the Law on Mobility, or LOM law, which will impose the end of the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles and hybrids in France from 2030. The market for electric cars and plug-in hybrids is therefore still in its infancy. Whether or not consumers are convinced of the merits of the fight against greenhouse gas emissions, they will have to give up their internal combustion engine cars.
The start-up Zephyre, a specialist in electrical charging stations
Founded in 2017 by Gaëlle Mettey, Zephyre is innovative on this market, as it does not only offer the installation of its charging stations, but also a catalogue of turnkey services for individuals (via condominiums for example), businesses and administrations.
Its connected EV-Box terminals are manufactured by a subsidiary of Engie, and installed following application for public subsidies.
Once in place, Zephyre ensures their administrative management and remote maintenance. Beyond these basic services, Zephyre helps you manage consumption.
The ADVENIR label
You understood it, labeled "Advenir", Zephyre takes care of all the administrative procedures:
- Technical study of the installation, dimensioning and electrical optimization of the load point.
- Obtaining subsidies and electric mobility aids
- Calculation of the amount of the Energy Transition Tax Credit.
- With the Advenir program, the costs of supplies and installation can be covered up to 40% or 50%.
- For the "Energy Transition" tax credit, the eligible amount corresponds to 30% of the expenses.
The Zephyre charging terminals are certified "European Community (CE)". The installation is guaranteed for 1 year, and the charging station for 3 years. In order to manage electricity consumption and billing, the company provides the customer with detailed control software. Zephyre is not the owner of the charging station! Zephyre manages the installation service and the after-sales service for the equipment and administration. The price of the bollard, after deduction of state subsidies, is between 1000 and 1500 euros. The monthly subscription is 10 euros for the service (at the time of writing this article). This makes it a profitable investment if one takes into account a full charge of about 6.13 euros.
Zephyre's taking care of everything!
Driving a car that does not emit any greenhouse gases is a responsible act, but also one that is simple and based on the know-how of an imaginative company. Once convinced by their professionalism, the Zephyre company conquers many companies whose customers spend more or less time at home: hotels (most recently Grape Hospitality) and before that Norauto, administrations or Novotel. The autonomous plug and play monitoring of a vehicle's charging station allows the customer to follow the battery level and its billing live.
Why a terminal rather than a socket for individuals?
The arguments are strong. The so-called wallbox charging station is the ideal way to preserve the integrity of your domestic electrical installation. It is also much more efficient for recharging your car. A concrete example: with a wallbox installed by Zephyre, your car will be charged eight times faster than with an electrical outlet. If you have to leave your home in an emergency you will always find your vehicle fully charged. With a Zephyre terminal it only takes 1 to 4 hours for a 0 to 100% charge.
Interests of the Zephyre terminal for service or commercial companies
With the installation of Zephyre terminals, the companies wish to attract new customers who own electric vehicles. It is a real additional service for customers or visitors of administrations to be able to recharge their car while waiting in professional or administrative premises. Hotels and restaurants have understood this and these companies are more likely to turn to Zephyre than to another company whose quality of service sometimes disappoints.
