Panel Discussion

With £1.3 billion announced by the government to accelerate the rollout of charge points for in homes, workplaces, streets and on motorways across England we look at the challenges for EV infrastructure leading up to the 2030 phase out date of ICE vehicles

  • Discussing potential ways to distribute £1.3 billion funding, and how businesses and local authorities can make the case to receive support.
  • With tighter budgets post COVID-19, are the commitments enough? And how will the rollout of charge points be affected?
  • Analysing whether there will there be a need for the phase out date, or whether price parity might push out ICE vehicles before 2030?
  • Achieving a nationwide charging strategy to avoid monopolies of price and protect consumers

Panel Discussion

As the Energy Whitepaper outlines the intention to bring forward regulations in 2021 to mandate that private EV charge points must be smart, we look at how data can help build a smart charging network that can identify charging needs based on location and speed demands.

  • Assessing the latest modelling techniques and frameworks, and how public sector can start to build their own to obtain the grid capacity information, land information, demand for existing chargers, EV ownership, and electrical supply.
  • Analysing data on which chargers are accessed most frequently, which payment methods are used, and charging time to maintain, update and expand a charging network
  • Building a smart grid to support charge points as the information from these points will inform planning and operation of electricity systems, and how this can help customers save money.
  • The applications of AI open data in understanding the behaviour of drivers better to inform the building and maintenance of charging networks

Panel Discussion

Cities across the country including London, Nottingham, Leeds and Oxford have established clean air zones to discourage car use. In this session we will hear from leading cities on how they have established clean air zones, their plans for future expansion of the zones, and how they have impacted their decarbonisation targets.

  • Implications of implementing clean air zones
  • Building a network or charging infrastructure in and around the zone

Panel Discussion

As local authorities take on more responsibility for ensuring EV drivers have adequate charging infrastructure to support their vehicles the challenge remains that around a third of households have no access to off street charging. In this session leading councils and infrastructure providers will look at the latest technologies and innovative solutions to address challenges of cost, accessibility, and installation.

Panel Discussion

So far, the EV revolution has relied on ‘early -adopters’ willing to accept less than perfect charging experiences as EV owners. Here we will examine how the level of service needs to improve as the market grows and EVs become mainstream to ensure that public charging anxiety doesn’t put off buyers.

- 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 innovative locations such as underground charging possible due to no emissions

- Developing national and international standards especially in terms of interoperability and security.

-  As government legislation looks to make contactless payments mandatory, how can chargers be retrofitted to roll this out as easily as possible?

- 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
