The rollout of EV charge points in Britain is continuing to pick up pace, growing by around 30% in 2022 from 28,458 to 37,261, a new record for the highest number of UK charge points installed within a year.
While this rollout is helping to reduce range anxiety, this progress could be hampered if the charge points themselves are often broken or closed.
In the past, charge point operators have been able to maintain their networks of EV charge points in a relatively manual fashion. But as these networks grow to cover thousands and thousands of chargers across the country, this becomes increasingly challenging.
So, how can operators continue to grow their networks without letting the maintenance, and therefore quality, of the charge points within them slip?
In the latest in our Current± Briefings series, we talk to Techniche about the challenge of charge point maintenance, how software is stepping up to manage this, and how this can help drive forwards EV adoption.
Current± Briefings: Maintaining EV charging confidence through maintenance will run at 10am GMT on Thursday 23 February.
It follows on from our most recent webinar on revenue streams following the end of the Triad system, which explored amongst other areas how the Demand Flexibility Service is offering a new avenue for companies to gain value by optimising their assets.
The series has also recently seen webinars on transmission charges post-Triads, grid integration, the Energy Price Guarantee, the future of Dynamic Containment and vehicle-to-grid technology. As well as sessions on EV smart charging, the emerging inertia market and how the energy crisis is impacting on the Capacity Market during the beginning of 2022.
