BalanceUp - Load Management

EV Charging Dynamic Load Managment (LMS)

Would you like to offer efficient electric vehicle (EV) charging at multiple points?
Want to keep electricity infrastructure upgrades to a minimum?
Need to keep your electrical supply stable?

With an EV charging system in your building, each individual EV charger huge amounts of energy for extended periods. And an unmanaged standard EV charger draws power from the grid and charges an EV’s battery at maximum charge rate until it’s full.

As a result and in our experience, only a handful of EV chargers can practically be installed within an apartment building or car park due to supply contraints and high demands of unmanaged EV Chargers . Well, imagine a system with 10 EV chargers running for long periods of time: at the same time, at maximum power. It’s costly. And the heavy burden on the electrical infrastructure could cause a blackout. Or worse - it can damage your building’s electrical infrastructure if the electrical draw is more than what’s available. Can you afford the time, effort, and cost if this happens?

The good news is, this can all be avoided with EVUp's dynamic load balancing (DLB) solution.

What is EV charging load management?

Load management system (or LMS) enables the charge rates across multiple EV charging locations to be dynamically adjusted to suit the available power supply minus the consumption of everything else, obviously. 

It means multiple electric vehicles can be plugged in and charged at the same time - while managing the charge rate as more or fewer vehicles are connected. If more power is needed than available, load management will re-calculate and change the power available at each charging point. This is known as dynamic load balancing or DLB or in some case Load Management System or LMS.

Benefits of a load management system or LMS

Load management system protects a site from being overloaded. It keeps track of power being used at peak times. On top of that, load management software maximises the number of EV chargers that can be installed at a location and optimises charging time for EV drivers.

Load management can help you: 

Charge more 

Maximum vehicle chargers installed

Cut costs

Save on electricity and infrastructure costs

Protect assets

Protect electrical Infrastructure

Monitor usage

Keep track of power usage at peak times

Charge faster

Decrease charging time as EVs run efficiently

Introducing the EVUp network

The EVUp network provides intelligent, integrated & connected electric vehicle charging solutions across Australia & New Zealand.

We believe more people will use EV if there are more family-friendly charging options where people work, shop, and play.
We know that attractive and highly visible charging stations:

  • Raise awareness and understanding of electric vehicles
  • Ease concerns about range anxiety
  • Encourages the transition to low-emission transport  for cleaner cities & a brighter future

EVUp are proud to offer Australian made AC and DC charging options…the only Australian EV charging network to do so. Contact us about our network and dynamic load balancing (DLB) solution for load management.

How it Works


Off-peak. Residents are sleeping and demand is lowest.
EV chargers operate at their maximum for a full charge overnight.


Residents are at work. Demand for power is low.
EV chargers can be set to maximum charging for the few cars plugged in.


A few residents return home to charge their EVs.
Chargers will reduce output to match the building’s increased demand.


Peak period with most residents at home to charge their EVs.
The load from charger will be moderated to stay within the network’s limits.

Choose the load management solution for your budget and building

Whether you’re starting small or planning for bigger EV capacity, we can help you with our dynamic load balancing (DLB) solution.

EV charging for the first few residents

Use existing infrastructure to offer EV charging to the first few residents using the closest public light and distribution board.
Up to 6 stations can generally be added.
Cost: Low to none
EV capacity: Low

Expand capability without a cabling upgrade

Load balance across your existing distribution board for up to 30 charging stations to be installed without upgraded cabling or circuit protection.
The capital cost is worth more than what it delivers. 
Cost: low
EV capacity: Medium    

Futureproof your existing building

Electrical infrastructure upgrade for residents to retrofit chargers to their private parking space any time.
We’ll take site assessments to work out your building’s supply and capacity.
Charging will be supplied across your building and the load shared across every floor.
Cost: medium to high
EV capacity: high    

Plan for new buildings

Plan for electrical infrastructure with EV distribution boards installed by  in accessible spots on each floor.
This will minimise costs for more charging stations. Residents who get EVs later can retrofit.
Costs: medium to high
EV capactiy: high

Set up EV charging for all residents

Load balancing across each floor of your building.
We’ll make sure the building doesn’t go past its maximum demand. Usage of individual floors will be monitored.
Cost: high
EV capacity: high
