EV Charging Infrastructure & Grid Integration 2012

Realised Case Studies…Trial Results…Practical Realities

With the roll-out of mass-market electric vehicles from leading manufacturers gathering pace, multiple stakeholders are still fervently looking for solutions to technical and commercial barriers to mass adoption of EVs, evolution of charging infrastructure, and the challenges of integrating EVs into the electricity grid.

The business case for investment in charging infrastructure is still a major issue, with questions over the level of investment required, whether infrastructure development will  kick-start the market, and where the money should come from to make zero-emissions transport a mass-market reality. Alongside this are the barriers of standardisation of charging hardware and communication protocol, as well as the increasingly important issue of interoperability of charging networks across borders and within national boundaries. Furthermore, the question of what solutions are realistically required for grid reinforcement in response to the unprecedented impact mass EV adoption could have on load profiles and grid stability is still unanswered.

For this reason, collaboration between utilities, distribution companies, vehicle manufacturers and national regulators has never been more important in the development of a commercially viable and robust infrastructure for public and home charging, that can be effectively supported by the electricity grid.

EV Charging Infrastructure & Grid Integration 2012 will be a global multi-stakeholder summit bringing together leading utilities, vehicle manufacturers, distribution system operators, standardisation bodies and regulators from Europe and Asia.  They will provide the latest business models for infrastructure investment and mobility services, case studies of successful E-Mobility projects and consumer behavioural studies, and provide the latest technological advances in fast-charging, smart-metering and ancillary systems.

Over two days EV Charging Infrastructure & Grid Integration 2012 will comprehensively address the key issues in E-mobility and will give delegates the opportunity to hear from multiple stakeholders on the strategies for overcoming barriers in the industry and the solutions that urgently need delivering.

Day one commences with an expert panel discussing the current EV market and the business models for charging infrastructure investment, followed by case studies of successful public and home charging programmes, as well as a discussion on home-charging strategies. The latest developments in standardisation will then be examined, followed by an in-depth look into network interoperability, providing ideas for solutions and its consumer-related, commercial potential.

Day two opens with insight from regulators on their current strategies and plans for infrastructure development and boosting EV adoption. The focus then moves to technology, examining the latest advances in fast charging and the current commercial viability followed by discussion of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology including the latest research on V2G communication and battery conditioning. Consumer behavioural patterns and billing strategies are then evaluated to understand how charging regimes can me made profitable.

EV Charging Infrastructure & Grid Integration 2012 is a fantastic global forum for stakeholders in the electric vehicle market to be brought right up to date on the industry’s position, and look to the future of clean, green sustainable transport.


“It was very nicely organized conference and I learned a lot through this event”


To drive the development of infrastructure and mass adoption of EVs, and mitigate grid strain caused by EV grid integration, it is vital that…

…multiple stakeholders in E-Mobility work together to understand market forecasts for electric vehicle roll-out and customer uptake, and develop a standardised, interoperable and commercially viable charging infrastructure, that will be effectively and safely integrated into electricity networks around the world.

Because of this, EV Charging Infrastructure & Grid Integration 2012 will bring together thought leaders from leading utilities, distribution companies and car manufacturers, as well as national regulators, to discuss innovative market models for infrastructure development, understand the development of EV standardisation, and examine the latest technological advances.

This is the only EV Charging Infrastructure event to be held in London, the home of one of the most advanced charging infrastructures in Europe, that will bring together global perspectives from the European and Asian and markets to share the latest models and initiatives for making EV charging infrastructure a commercially viable reality.

BUSINESS CASES AND INVESTMENT STRATEGIES: Understanding the different views and visions of multiple stakeholders on the financing debate for charging infrastructure investment and providing business cases and real-life studies of successful public EV infrastructure

STANDARDISATION : Explaining the latest developments in European and International standardisation for socket and plug hardware and smart communication protocol to understand its importance in driving EV uptake and the timescales for its completion

INTEROPERABILITY: Evaluating the most effective solutions to retrospectively modify multiple charging network systems to be interoperable to examine the commercial challenges and cost of investment

REGULATIONS: Gaining an insight from regulators on their views and visions for public and private charging infrastructure and on issues of grid integration for electric vehicles to understand how they see the future of infrastructure development

FAST CHARGING: Examining the commercial viability and grid impact of fast charging stations to understand the relative proportion of investment required compared to slow chargers and  their advantages and disadvantages to customers, and industry stakeholders

ANCILLARY SYSTEMS: Understanding the latest developments in smart metering and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies to formulate strategies for roll out and understand the challenges of this technology for utilities and vehicle manufacturers
