Keynote panel
  • How organisations can take a holistic view to deploying chargers, including not only the chargepoints, but grid connections, location, and microgrids for energy security.
  • How private and public organisations can work together to achieve the volumes of charging infrastructure that are realistically needed to achieve ICE phaseout by 2030
  • How consumers will be affected, and how they can be brought on the journey to embrace the EV transition

Panel Discussion

- Analysing what consumers want from the charging experience and understanding how chargers are being used

- The importance of developing comfortable charging locations, considering: weather protection and safety

- Building customer focused networks: putting chargers in areas such as rural towns where there is less commercial benefit but expands the network and uptake of EVs

Panel Discussion
  • How can customers be convinced to reduce demand at certain points of the day, to increase capacity available on the grid during times of day or reduce upgrade costs
  • A deep dive into optimising tariffs and charges for businesses charging fleets or employee’s vehicles, and EV users, including day, night, and weekend tariffs
  • With estimates that flexibility will only account for 15% extra load on the grid, how do you balance both flexibility and physical grid upgrades

Panel Discussion
  • Assessing the latest modelling techniques and frameworks to obtain the grid capacity and land information, demand for existing chargers, EV ownership levels, and electrical supply
  • Analysing data on which speeds of chargers are accessed most frequently, which payment methods are used, and charging time to maintain, update and expand a charging network
  • Applying open data to understand the behaviour of drivers to better inform the building and maintenance of charging networks

Panel Discussion
  • Assessing how batteries can provide lower cost solutions to offset the increased power demands of EVs and allow installers to have a stand-alone source of power
  • How do you identify whether renewables can be added to further supplement chargers, and remove the need for grid upgrades?
  • Outlining the costs and practicalities of connecting to the grid: how do you assess the load required for charging vehicles, and what are the timescales for infrastructure connections and upgrades
  • Explaining the application process for grid connections, and how to work closer with DNOs to understand grid demands

Case Study , Presentation

Outlining how IOT can provide up to 40% increase in revenues, and ~15% cost reduction of total revenues by addressing challenges including:

 

  • Operating and maintaining a fast-growing number of charging stations in parallel
  • Ensuring that stations are utilized to avoid becoming unprofitable
  • Continuously offer customers consistent and seamless charging experiences
  • Manage the energy balance as the supply is often not enough to handle charging demand
