I think you first need to determine the source and reliability of your energy supply and at what cost/rate structure you will pay and be paid. Secondly, you will need to determine if you will need/require battery storage, especially if you plan to utilize solar. Thirdly, if the EV charging station is to support an electric fleet for government, emergency services, police or military, you will need to have a very high reliable and resilient source of electricity. Under this scenario, you will likely need to have a microgrid in place with the charging system.
Advice on EV Charging Station Installation & Business Model
- Jul 15, 2020 2:17 am GMT
I need advice on the starting point to move into this specialist industry and specifically in Egypt. I read researcher papers & studies (CEDARE) on the topic, i understand how Egypt is not there yet in terms of infrastructure maturity, policy, regulations, planning and clarity on direction.
I would like to be part of this future development of EV infrastructure building in Egypt, but I don't know where to start off? Do i need to get in touch with Charging stations makers? Do I need basic training on EV Charging Stations Installations? Do I need to get in touch with the ministry Of electricity and renewable energy to understand the requirements to get a license for EV stations installations?
Where/who has any advise on how to enter this market?
