Charge Your Renault Electric Car Using 100% Solar Power and Optimise Your Power Consumption
Charging at a CEE Industrial Socket
You can charge your Renault electric car anywhere while you are out and about – provided that you have a mobile charging station, such as the NRGkick, and the right adapters. The Renault ZOE can be charged with up to 22kW of charging power at any 32 A CEE industrial socket, just like using the charging station at home. Other Renault models, such as the Renault Kangoo Z.E., can achieve up to 3.7 kW.
Charging at Public Charging Stations
You can also charge up your Renault ZOE at public charging stations. However, most providers of public charging stations will require that you register with them beforehand. As a result, public charging needs good planning. The be.ENERGISED system from has.to.be enables drivers of electric cars to pay for charging easily and directly online via PayPal or credit card, without the need of a prior registration.

Special Features when Charging Your Renault ZOE:
At up to 22 kW, the Renault ZOE has the highest charging power of all the Renault Z.E. models. The Renault ZOE charges with up to 22 kW at the domestic charging station, and with a battery capacity of 22 kWh it gives you full range after approx. 1.5 hours. Renault indicates a realistic range of 115-170 km, depending on your driving style and other influencing factors such as seasonal weather. According to NEDC, it is possible to drive up to 240 km on just a single charge. A type 2 plug is used for charging and the vehicle can be charged with 2.3 kW via a mode 2 charging cable at a single fused domestic socket. This should be avoided over the longer term for safety reasons. When charging at a domestic socket, your socket is fully loaded for 10 hours. At the charging station, you can not only charge your Renault ZOE safely but also 6.5 times more quickly than at a domestic socket. As with all Renault Z.E. models, you only rent the battery, and as soon as its performance declines it will be replaced; this ensures you to always have a fully functional battery in your vehicle.
