FREE Webinar: Supporting Electric Vehicle Infrastructure to Meet UK Low Carbon Goals

On 22 January 2019, Powerstar is hosting a free online energy webinar to provide insights into the current barriers restricting the wider adoption of electric vehicles (EV) in the UK, and how leading-edge technologies, such as energy storage, can support the energy infrastructure in order to enable further EV market share growth and assist in achieving decarbonisation efforts.

About the Webinar

Pressure continues to rise within the UK, and internationally, to move towards a greater reliance on EVs in order to drastically reduce carbon emissions in the face of critical climate change warnings. This, along with further Governmental pressures like the ‘Road to Zero’ strategy, are causing investments into EVs to rise significantly, with the global stock of EV’s rising to over 3 million last year – a huge leap from 14,260 in 2010.

Such huge growth in the investment into EV’s will require significant infrastructure upgrades in the UK to cope with the additional demand on the electricity network.

The reality of a connected, intelligent EV charging solution which can be powered off-grid as part of an energy storage solution continues to be an area of much discussion when it comes to the adoption of EV’s in the UK. This is particularly relevant as cleaner energy sources, such as solar PV and wind, continue to become a larger share of the energy mix. It is important that this green generation is maximised, and energy storage can be utilised to capture renewable energy to be used when most advantageous, including for EV charging.

The webinar will highlight how quickly the growth of EV’s in the UK has occurred and how this growth is projected to continue, including the investment from UK businesses looking to electrify their fleet and the solutions available to support that transition.

Join Powerstar on Tuesday, 22 January to explore the UK’s EV market with energy industry experts.
