SUMMARY | Successful ECPE Online Workshop "EV Charging Infrastructure" on 10 February 2021
Created by ECPE
In February, ECPE hosted its first online workshop for the topic “EV Charging and Infrastructure”. The workshop was very well attended with 113 participants from all over Europe and also many international attendees.
The 11 speakers from industry and academia presented material on state-of-art and future trends of a wide range of issues facing the uptake of Electric Vehicles for both personal and commercial transportation needs. More importantly the effect this would have on local and national electrical power infrastructures was discussed, highlighting the need for intelligent control of the charging infrastructure at grid and car levels, especially under Vehicle-to-Grid operation. On behalf of the Technical Chairs: Peter Steimer (Hitachi-ABB Powergrids), Torsten Leifert (Volkswagen) and Leo Lorenz (ECPE), we would like to thank everybody for taking part in a very informative workshop.
