Acciona Energía has been awarded the contract for the installation of charging points for electric cars and a renewable power supply system using photovoltaic panels at the Cuzco Ministerial Complex (Madrid). According to the contract, consulted by La Información, the award amount is 278,355 euros (with taxes) and has a term of execution of two months from the day after the signing of the certificate of verification of stakeout and start of the work.
The supporting report for the contracting, which has been carried out by simplified open procedure, contemplates the electrification of 40 parking spaces in total, installing 20 linked charging stations (EdRV). Each one will thus be able to supply energy to two cars simultaneously. By departments, the following distribution of stations is established:
– Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism: 8 chargers
– Ministry of Finance and Public Function: 4 chargers
– Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation: 4 chargers
– Ministry of Science and Innovation: 1 charger
– Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge: 1 charger
– Ministry of Universities: 1 loader
– Spanish Patent and Trademark Office: 1 charger
However, according to the text and “in order to optimize the number of electrified parking spaces, it is planned to establish the total number at 72. This last figure, although it does not allow simultaneous recharging. The linked recharging stations will be tip deo triphasic, 22 kilowatts.
As the charging stations will be activated by RFID cards and/or mobile applications, GSM, 3G and 4G mobile telephone repeaters and amplifiers will also be installed, compatible with all operators in order to have “sufficient telephone coverage”. Likewise, to cover part of the installation’s consumption, a new 22.8 kWp photovoltaic solar plant will be deployed, which will be connected to the low voltage network. It will be made up of: split-cell monocrystalline panels, to ensure better performance in partial shade; a weighted aluminum structure and a 17 kW three-phase inverter.
Acciona Energia will have to assume all the payments of rates, taxes and similar that derive from the work for its administrative approval, licenses, registrations and legalizations. “The municipal license fees, the ICIO and the municipal management fees are also included in the contractor’s scope for their payment,” the document states.
Air Quality Ordinance
The Air Quality and Sustainability Ordinance (OCAS) requires that one in every 40 parking spaces be electrified before January 1, 2023. In order to comply with said ordinance, as of May 28, 2021 the Ministry of Industry, Comercio y Turismo awarded the company Etecnic Smart Grids the drafting of the basic project to comply with the above requirement.
The tender was published on August 8 of last year and the contract was awarded on January 9, 2023. In total, offers were submitted by six companies: Cargacoches (Acciona Energía), Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios, Elecnor Servicios y Proyectos, Greening Ingeniería Civil and Environmental Intelligent Real Solutions and ION Smart Energy 2000 own network and management for third parties.
Under Royal Decree Law 29/2021, from January 1 of this year, all buildings for use other than private residential that have a parking area with more than 20 spaces, either inside or in a space assigned exterior, as well as in existing parking lots not attached to buildings with more than 20 spaces, must have certain minimum provisions for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
“In general, a charging station will be installed for every 40 parking spaces or fraction, up to 1,000 spaces, and one more charging station for every 100 additional spaces or fraction. or public bodies linked to it or dependent on the Likewise, a charging station will be installed for every 20 parking spaces or fraction, up to 500 spaces, and one more charging station for every 100 additional spaces or fractionation”, señ fractionation”, text.
Obligation for gas stations
On the other hand, Law 7/2021, of May 20, on climate change and energy transition, establishes that service stations are obliged to have at least one electric charging point in their facilities or within a radius of 300 meters It is the number of liters of fuel (gasoline and diesel) sold in 2019 that determines the power of the recharging point. In total, there are a thousand gas stations affected.
There are three exceptions to the general obligation: facilities that already have a charging point with the same characteristics as the one they must install; facilities that cannot meet the technical conditions or the applicable industrial safety and quality requirements; and installations in which it is not feasible to run the electrical connection necessary for the charging point. The Government’s objective is to have 100,000 public points for this year.
