Panel Discusses Hurdles in Scaling Up Smart Charging and V2X Adoption, Citing Regulatory Challenges, Grid Congestion, Consumer Behavior Changes, and Lack of Standardization.

The panel discussion revolves around the hurdles preventing the widespread adoption of smart charging and V2X (vehicle-to-everything) technologies. The primary challenge highlighted is balancing power flow due to extreme peaks in renewable energy production from PV (photovoltaic) and wind sources, which requires a shift in production strategy and load flexibility. Congestion problems within existing grid infrastructure also pose significant challenges, necessitating changes in grid operations to accommodate these new demands. Panelists pointed out that consumer behavior change is essential; customers are not yet accustomed to variable electricity tariffs compared to fixed fuel costs. Concerns among bus operators about ensuring readiness without disrupting services were noted as well. Other issues include insufficient rollout of smart meter gateways, particularly in Germany, highlighting the need for metering infrastructure improvements. Regulatory frameworks lag behind technological advancements, requiring standardization and interoperability enhancements alongside regulatory sandboxes for experimentation. In summary: overcoming technical barriers, enhancing customer education on flexible schemes, updating regulatory policies, and improving grid infrastructures are crucial steps toward scaling up smart charging solutions effectively across different regions.

Talk of session: Powering Tomorrow: E-Mobility Integration and Its Impact on Grids

Explore the integration and impact of e-mobility on power grids. Join us for a deep-dive into the seamless integration of electric mobility with power systems and discuss challenges, breakthroughs, and the crucial role of smart grids. Learn about effective strategies for large-scale e-mobility deployment, drawing insights from AVERE's advocacy of sustainable transportation. Examine the transformative effects of e-mobility adoption on grids and infrastructure, discuss resilience, capacity planning and adaptive measures. The focus will be on three key areas: e-mobility power system integration, e-mobility deployment strategies, and their impact on the grid and infrastructure.
