LEARNING BENEFITS

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
