EVs, smart charging and vehicle-to-grid: Your views required


The Energyst is asking readers for their views on electric vehicles (EVs).

We hope to understand how public and private sector organisations perceive EVs, whether they are considering implementing charging infrastructure and to gauge attitudes towards smart charging and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services.

Please take our short survey.

Anonymised answers will form part of the research component for our forthcoming 2019 EV report. The report will also include qualitative interviews with end users that are deploying charging infrastructure and electrifying fleets, as well as energy suppliers, network companies, consultants and car manufacturers.

Everyone that takes the survey will receive a free copy of the report and first opportunity to request a free ticket to our EV-V2G conference in London in April.

The five-minute survey asks businesses if they are planning to install chargers, an approximate timetable, whether they will combine charging infrastructure with onsite generation or storage and whether they have sufficient network capacity on site. It also asks for views on smart charging and vehicle-to-grid services.

Please take the survey here. Your views are hugely appreciated.

If you’re interested in contributing to the report, email brendan@energystmedia.com by end of January.
