Course objectives – is this for you?


Even without the rapid growth of electric vehicles (EVs), our current power systems are in the midst of disruptive transition towards cleaner, diversified and more flexible structures.


As the transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs) grows, what will be the impact on the power system? What are the barriers to scale and which solutions (and hence market opportunities) will be essential?


This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the cross-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.


 

Session 1: The 'macro' impacts of EVs on electricity supply and decarbonisation


An up-to-date review of EV growth trends, plus quantitative illustrations of how increased electrification of road transport impacts requirements for electricity generation and which variables determine the impact of EVs on lowering system carbon emissions.



Session 2: Smart and bidirectional charging for 'grid-friendly' EV integration


A discussion of the options available for influencing charging behaviour, including both technological and motivational requirements, plus the status and trends in deeper EV/grid integration through developments such as 'V2G' (vehicle-to-grid).



Session 3: Infrastructure trends, innovations and emerging market disruptions


A critical, grid-impact focused analysis of growth and business strategies from key companies and sectors, plus the potential impacts of emerging technological and business model innovations, and game-changing sector-wide disruptions.
