Industry has made great progress in creating a quality solution for Plug-in Vehicles in the UK and we have seen considerable growth in the availability of charging infrastructure over the last 12months. We are now entering a critical phase for this emerging technology and therefore attention needs to be paid to establishing a strong consumer offer for Plug-in Vehicles and interoperable charging networks.
This lecture explores the current Plug-in Vehicle market and the availability of charging technologies in the UK. Yselkla Farmer will review the next stages in developing an infrastructure to support a mass market of Plug-in Vehicles, as well as taking a look at the potential network implications of Plug-in Vehicle charging and what this technology offers in terms of energy management and demand response in the built environment.
An overview of BEAMA’s current activity will be provided as well as an introduction to the BEAMA Guide to Electric Vehicle Infrastructure.
