Electromobility

Promoting e-mobility now to prepare for later

Charging infrastructure for e-cars will soon be mandatory

According to a new law, one million charge points are to be created and at least seven million electric vehicles are to be put in circulation by 2030. With the Building Electromobility Infrastructure Act (Gebäude-Elektromobilitätsinfrastruktur-Gesetz – GEIG) aimed at establishing building-integrated charging and wiring infrastructure, the Federal Government is implementing the EU Building Directive 2018/844 into the national legislation.

Products

Ready for electromobility?

Our products meet all the requirements regarding secure wiring infrastructure in order to easily add the charge points at a later stage – be it for residential buildings, commercial premises, parking lots, or municipal areas. One electrical conduit respectively should be provided for the power supply line and for the data cable.

Charging infrastructure on buildings

What does the GEIG involve?

For newly built buildings, the GEIG specifies the following for building applications as of 10 March 2021:

  • For residential buildings from six parking spaces, every single parking space must be provided with a prepared conduit
    connection (see Section 6 GEIG)*
    For non-residential buildings from seven parking spaces, every third parking space must be provided with a prepared conduit connection (see Section 7 GEIG)*
    Non-residential buildings shall be additionally equipped with a charge point ready for operation.

This wiring infrastructure makes sure that charge points can be added whenever they become necessary.

Conduits are a lucrative investment in sustainability.

Not only do they protect wires and lines from stress or damage, they also significantly reduce the installation effort and expenses later on.

Wiring infrastructure from the expert in electrical systems

Wiring infrastructure from the expert in electrical systems
  • The eco-balanced electrical conduit FFKuS-EM-F-105 co2ntrol makes an important contribution to more sustainability – both in construction and for e-mobility. Due to its optimum insertion characteristics, data and power cables can be easily retrofitted.
  • The Kabuflex R plus type 750 cable conduit with very high compressive strength is ideally suited for underground installation of power and data cables. The products from the Kabu brand family allow gas- and water-tight building lead-through. In addition to this, the components securely and reliably protect the cables inside the conduit.
  • Further products from our Kabuflex range also provide a water-tight and secure connection from the conduit to the preparation point for the charging pole. The flexible-in-use Furowell pole foundation conduit creates the transition from the wiring infrastructure to the charging pole, and allows manufacturer-independent assembly of charging stations.
  • The galvanised Staro Gewinde-ES-V steel conduit is particularly useful for underground or multi-storey car parks: The sturdy and vandal-proof solution for power and data wiring ensures secure exposed installation in parking areas right to the charge point.

Think of tomorrow already today: If builders demonstrate far-sightedness and install conduits already during new construction or renovation, they make an investment in the sustainability of buildings. Since flexible infrastructure makes it possible to easily expand the existing electrical installations – let’s say, by adding an individual charging pole for an e-car.

The appropriateness of including a charging station for electric vehicles with a suitable infrastructure has been confirmed in a study conducted by the ZVEH (German Association for Electrical Engineering and IT Trades) and the ZVEI (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association): It revealed that the costs of retrofitting at a later point for a newly built single-family home are approximately six to eight times higher as compared to the future-proof planning with conduits.
