Panel Discussion

Renewables and battery storage are increasingly popular options to pair alongside chargers to reduce grid demands and save money by avoiding charging a peak time, and even to increase the sustainability profile of a charger by using renewable energy sources. However, the rapid growth of storage and the myriad of options can be a cause of inertia as buyers are wary of purchasing something that is out of date. In this session we will outline all the options and the long-term implications of deploying battery storage alongside your charge points.

  • How to make the most of integrating storage and charging on site and optimising those assets for increased longevity and performance.
  • Looking at the long-term development of storage technology and latest innovations to make the best choice when procuring storage
  • Examining the reasons to select alternative battery technologies and chemistries and how they affect performance and price, and why lithium ion is problematic environmentally
