Batteries Need Batteries: the Case for Energy Storage in EV Charging Infrastructure

With rapid growth in EV numbers for both private users and fleet operators, energy distribution networks are under considerable pressure.  The development of charging infrastructure has to keep up with growing vehicle numbers for confidence to be maintained.  An immediate challenge is faced by fleet operators needing to charge numbers of vehicles in single locations.  Energy storage is a tool in the box as a permanent of temporary solution avoiding cost and long lead-times associated with reinforcement.  Capable of doing more, this presentation explores the ways that energy storage can be a versatile asset and address multiple challenges.  The use of smart charging technology and clever modelling can combine to optimise the dimensions of storage that can often be smaller than expected and make for a surprisingly cost effective option.
