Smart Development of Charging Infrastructures

End-2-end view

Car manufacturers are coming under increasing pressure to bring climate-friendly vehicles to market. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that more and more people are developing an awareness for sustainability in mobility. On the other hand, there are increasing rules on all levels. For example, cities and municipalities are issuing driving bans for vehicles with diesel engines. The EU provides references for the CO2 limit value. Since the beginning of this year vehicles may emit on average a maximum of 95 g of CO2 per kilometer. If OEMs do not adhere to this regulation, they must pay penalties to the EU. And these fines can quickly end up in the billion range. As the current limit value is difficult to reach with conventional combustion engines, vehicle manufacturers are increasingly turning to electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids. In the end the customers decide whether they choose one of the two versions. Despite the significant appeal many are still reluctant. Apart from the high purchase cost, the limited range and thus long charging times and a still very rudimentary charging infrastructure prevent them from making a purchase.

So far there are only 27,730 publicly accessible charging points in Germany. That is far too little to dispel the doubts expressed by the customers and drive forward the proliferation of electric vehicles. Therefore, OEMs, fleet operators and dealer associations, municipalities, operators of large venues, and other players should push ahead with the expansion of the charging infrastructure. It is important that an end-2-end perspective is adopted and isolated stand-alone solutions without coordination are avoided.

In our MHPDeepDive "Smart development of charging infrastructures", we present the holistic approach of MHP in order to realize an end-2-end charging infrastructure: We describe all phases in the development of a smart charging infrastructure: from the dimensioning and conceptual design to the profitability calculation through to the implementation and digitization.

What awaits you in our MHPDeepDive:

  • We present MHP's holistic approach for the realization of end-2-end charging infrastructures
  • We show you how charging infrastructures can be developed the smart way and what there is to consider
  • You find out what advantages a smart infrastructure has for you
