Electric Vehicles & the Grid (Online Course)
Electric Vehicles & the Grid (Online Course)
The essential guide to opportunity and risk within emerging EV charging value chains
Even without the rapid growth of EVs, our current power systems are in the midst of a disruptive transition towards cleaner, diversified and more flexible structures. If a transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs) is to be achieved, what will be the impact on these systems? What are the barriers to scale and which solutions (and hence market opportunities) will be essential? This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the multi-sector issues that must be understood and integrated, plus the competitive battles ahead, including: technology status and trends, management of electricity demand & supply, charging network players and competitors, consumer behaviour influences.
Benefits of Attending
- Quantify the variables which will determine the impact of EVs on electricity supply
- Identify the key barriers to widespread EV integration and growth, from a power system perspective
- Assess where and how EVs can help the grid, through smart charging and V2G solutions
- Get up-to-date on the most significant value chain activities and pilot study findings
- Analyse and segment the competitive landscape for EV charging
- Understand and discuss which future technologies, behavioural trends and policy influences will be crucial to creating long-term, sustainable business models
Live Online Course – How It Works
The structure of our virtual learning program is designed to keep the same levels of engagement and networking as our on-site public courses. Course content is delivered through our easy-to-use online learning platform and is supplemented by case studies and practical exercises.
Like our classroom-based public courses, you will have live interaction with our course facilitators and other participants. Our live online courses are led by our experienced instructors, who will provide you with easily digestible content, using knowledge learned from many years in the industry, during scheduled times. Delegates will receive copies of the course materials electronically.
This course is scheduled to take place over 3 live online sessions using virtual learning technology.
Session 1: 23 February 2021, 7am – 10am GMT+0
The EV Market and Its Bulk Impact on Electricity Systems
- EV market drivers & charging trends
- The macro impact of EVs on transitioning power systems
Session 2: 24 February 2021, 7am – 10am GMT+0
Charging Challenges, Smart Charging and EVs as Grid Assets
- Charging networks, smart charging and grid distribution systems
- Electric vehicles as grid assets
Session 3: 25 February 2021, 7am – 10am GMT+0
Value Chain Convergence and Technology Disruption
- New players, new strategies and new business opportunities
- Evaluating the impacts of technology, behavioural change and potential competition
- Closing Summary: Are today’s assumptions appropriate for the long-term, sustainable charging networks and business models of tomorrow?
The course combines presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilised wherever helpful.
We would like to customise the workshop based on your specific needs. Pre-Course Questionnaire will be sent prior to the workshop for analyse in advance and to be addressed during the course.
Upon the successful completion of this course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion bearing the signatures from both the Course Director and the Course Organiser. This Certificate will testify your endeavour and serve towards your professional advancement.
