Owners and operators of commercial, depot and destination EV charging infrastructure require advanced solutions to manage limitations in grid interconnections.
Whether connected to congested grids or as part of a fleet of other clean energy assets, effective monitoring, flexible scheduling and grid and market integrations are essential for economic EV charging roll-out.
The recent and ongoing growth in EV sales is posing significant challenges for the development of the required charging infrastructure and its connection to already strained grids. The most effective business models for charging infrastructure provision at destinations (leisure, workplaces, retail), on trunk transport routes and for commercial vehicles need to include integration and flexibility in the grid and market. This needs to leverage the advances made in flexible grid integration and management tools already used for other low-carbon technologies. EV charging infrastructure also needs to pair with solar PV, energy storage, and other flexible loads for a complete net zero carbon energy and transport strategy.
