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

As the uptake of EVs increases, consumer demand for places to charge will also increase, and organisations and landowners will have the opportunity to install their own points to attract customers and even generate revenue. However, with uptake by business slow thus far, we examine the benefits for businesses to develop their own charging network.

  • Why should small and mid-sized operators consider installing chargepoints? What is driving the need for EV charging and what are customers looking for?
  • What is the opportunity? Taking advantage of the incentives and grants available; opportunities for generating revenue; what are the benefits?
  • What do businesses need to consider? The tech explained; things to look out for; avoiding the pitfalls
  • How do private chargepoints fit into the overall charging infrastructure?; planning for the future
