Date: Tuesday 29 October 2019
Location: Energy UK Offices, 26 Finsbury Square (1st Floor), London EC2A 1DS
30 million electric vehicles are expected on UK roads by 2050, consuming up to 100TWh of power per year. Should the energy industry expect drivers to fit their charging into the needs of the energy system, or should we build a system that gives customer freedom to charge when and where they want?
This panel will consider the findings from the EV Energy Taskforce, and look at the role of smart charging and future network investment.
