Apartment EV Charging

Want to install EV charging into your apartment building? 

Each year, more Australians living in apartments, flats, and units are switching to electric vehicles (EVs).

It’s great for the environment, and great on your pocket too.

But owning an EV can be harder to manage if your apartment building doesn’t have EV charging.

You shouldn’t be disadvantaged for having an EV.

Instead, it should be easy and convenient for you to own a vehicle that’s helping the environment.

We often get requests from excited EV owners wanting to install an EV charger in their parking spots.

The good thing is, many site owners would like to offer EV charging to tenants like you — but genuinely don't know where to start.

Apartment EV charging made easy

That’s where we come in.

We live and breathe EVs. And some of us live in apartments with EVs too.

That’s why we know the process:

The apartment EV charging journey always starts with the body corporate or owners corporation.

Personal apartment EV chargers

Wouldn’t it be great to have your own EV charger?

You wouldn’t have to wait for others to charge their EVs.

This can be a problem if your building doesn’t offer fast EV charging in communal spaces.

EV owners prefer to skip petrol station lines -why should you line up when you can charge overnight?

We can help you set up a charging station in your own car space:

If you’re the first in your complex with an EV, it can be hard to know how to ask site owners for permission.

We’ve worked with plenty of apartment residents like you to successfully persuade owners corporations to install EV charging.

We’ll prepare a proposal for you to send to your owners corporation and strata manager.

This will make it easy for you to give them all the information they need to set it up.

And they’ll appreciate it because they’ll likely soon get the same request from others (if they haven’t already!).

Site owners

How it works

The process chart below shows what site owners can expect from us when it comes to apartment EV charging:

We will work with your electrician or provide a turnkey apartment EV solution

  1. Use your own electrician

We realise you might have an electrician to perform the capital works already in your building. However, if they have too much on or aren’t sure about taking this on, we can help you.

4 simple ways to collect revenue

You don't have to hand over your personal details when buying petrol, so why should EV drives have to when buying electrons?

Based on overseas trends, we believe easy & universal methods of payment will become mainstream, rather than smartphone apps that require log-ins.

EV drivers expect an app. That’s why we offer 4 methods of payment. You decide which payment gateway suits:
  1. QR code:  Frictionless experience, anonymous interaction, no data collected.
  2. Paypass: Frictionless experience, anonymous interaction, no 4C required.
  3. Phone app: Driver details collected and stored. Familiar user experience.
  4. RFID (radio frequency identification): Driver details tied to RFID cards. Payments made in arrears and managed by venue.
  5. Paypass credit card EV Charger: Frictionless payment gateway. Popular system amongst EV drivers.

EV Software and hardware


Quality EV charging software is the key to charging EVs in apartment buildings.

We've developed EV charging software that can manage:

  • Multiple and flexible billing, including by the hour, by kWh and by consumer type
  • Load management and balancing across groups or pools of EV charging units

An easy-to-use dashboard so you can find real-time and historic data, such as power usage and charge times

You can depend on our experience and data from setting up many other apartment EV installations to help you work out:

  • How to best use your current infrastructure
  • What upgrades may be needed
  • What you don’t need.

EVUp's UpCharge software has been developed by our in-house team in Australia.

Once you’re on board, you can expect timely support and dialogue during the Australian or NZ working day.

UpCharge: intuitive, intelligent and integrated Aussie software

If you've been researching EV charging, you'll have noticed the term 'OCPP'.

This stands for Open Charge Point Protocol.

It's a way of connecting all charging locations on the EVUp network to a central management system. So you can access information such as session times, carbon offsets and revenue.

EVUp's UpCharge software allows you to:

  • View all charging sessions
  • Download records
  • Manage access and payments on one screen
  • Work out when charging should be scaled up through forecasting energy usage


Choose the best EV Charger hardware from both local and overseas manufacturers.

We only offer the best charging hardware.

We’ve had time to sort the wheat from the chaff as one of the first in EV infrastructure companies in Australia.

That’s why we only offer apartment public electric car chargers that are reliable, robust, supportable and maintainable.

Every EV charger also works seamlessly with UpCharge too — so you and your tenants can expect a consistent and familiar user experience.

If you are looking at an electric car charger that's not on our compatibility list then we may still be able to enrol your charger. Just ask us.
