63. Ultra-fast EV charging (and mini grids) - Redefining Energy podcast
- Dec 1, 2021 10:10 am GMT
EV charging is developing exponentially. It is now a 30bnUSD market per year, growing at an astonishing pace of 20%. More than 1.5m EV charging stations are now operational in the world, 50% in China, 30% in Europe. The US will catch up soon thank to the Biden Infrastructure plan that commits 7.5bnUSD to EV charging.
But ultra-fast charging comes with technical challenges as the impact on the local electricity networks are tremendous. On the one hand, large EV charging networks are being deployed with a commoditised approach and questionable business models; on the other hand, new turn-key sophisticated solutions start to emerge, such as integrating batteries and EV charging, creating micro-grids at retailers’ premises.
We invite Arcady Sosinov, CEO FreeWire Technologies, a Californian Start-Up that has raised more than 100mUSD from leading investors (Riverstone, BP, BlueBear), to discuss the future of Ultra-fast EV charging. And it is not going to be necessarily what people currently think.
Abstract: Communication devices and controls, cloud hosting and computing services, and grid-edge technologies are challenging the utility industry business model as we know it today. Many utilities are considering merging information technology..
This year I will try to post these “PV (photovoltaic) and BESS (battery energy storage systems)” reports frequently enough to where I can get them each into a single post (in 2021 I did a total of six posts). I will also try to make the first..
Listen to Con Edison’s senior vice president of Customer Energy Solutions, Leonard P.
The U.S. electric grid is a focal point of 2021 as the nation’s emphasis swings strongly towards decarbonization to slash greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The federal government is setting aggressive goals, and distributed energy resources (DER)..
