The consumer’s journey down electric avenue
Ian Plummer - Auto Trader
Using data from the UK’s largest new and used car marketplace; this session analyses current EV uptake in the UK to assess the current state of the EV market. The session will also dissect consumer’s anxiety around EVs e.g. range anxiety, upfront costs to enable the industry and government to implement strategies to better allay consumer apprehension and, in turn, increasing demand and expediting the development and deployment of EVs.

Ultra-fast charging facilitating uptake of Electric Vehicles
Roy Williamson - BP
50% of UK drivers do not currently have access to home charging. Vehicle utilisation rates to increase with new mobility solutions, many electric. In order to support the adoption of EVs we will need to provide a network of convenient and safe ultra-fast charging that allows drivers to charge quickly - ideally in 10 minutes or so. We believe that a network of ultra-fast charging points on forecourts and new hubs will provide the most cost-effective solution for the economy. The grid will require additional investment to support ultra-fast charging which could reduce grid infrastructure burden (compared to upgrading power to every home). Making ultra-fast charging a reality will require strong and committed partnerships among industry, regulators, researchers and governments.

Mobility trends in Europe – opportunities for new products & services
Celine Cluzel - Element Energy
Electrification is only one trend that will affect car manufacturers in the medium term. For example, demographic changes such as population growth, ageing and urbanisation could profoundly impact the demand for private cars in the future, by increasing the number of people unable or unwilling to choose conventional ownership. The efforts of major cities to improve quality of life for their citizens, by improving air quality and reduce noise, is likely to provide a strong stimulus for new mobility models such as car clubs. These trends are likely to be accelerated by advances in vehicle automation, as electric autonomous vehicles are likely to offer low cost, highly convenient alternatives to car ownership and even to conventional public transport. Finally, beyond the transport sector, the wider energy system is undergoing rapid change, with a shift from large centralised generation to renewable (but intermittent) generation, which presents new challenges for meeting peak energy demands and managing the network. This in turn creates opportunities for new technologies, such as grid scale batteries or electric vehicles, to support the management of a more volatile energy supply and secure revenues for their owners by doing so. The presentation will speak about the opportunities for new products and services that will be created by the trends above.

Robotics-enabled Conductive Extreme Fast Charging for Multi-chemistry Battery Electric Vehicles and AEVs
Kevin Leary - PowerHydrant
PowerHydrant charges AEVs autonomously - but there is more. PowerHydrant also enables efficient extreme fast charging (XFC) and improves fleet charging operational effectiveness by removing human factors and constraints from any EV and AEV charging scenario. Utilizing advanced 3D sensing and Augmented Reality techniques and enabled by commoditized smartphone components, PowerHydrant is a low-cost and robust solution with extremely low electrical source resistance between EVSE and target vehicle. PowerHydrant is effective from 3.3 kW to 1.6 MW and beyond.
