Question Title

* 1. We estimate that today 62% people charge at home (off-street), 19% charge on-street at home, 6% charge at work, 8% charge en-route and 4% charge at destination charging such as supermarkets. Do you agree with how we have characterised the different charging segments?

Question Title

* 2. Do you agree that of all segments workplace charging will undergo the most change between now and 2028?

Question Title

* 3. Our EV strategy focuses on three objectives: a) inform investment and industry leading policies and standards, b) deliver great customer experience, and c) develop a network that is prepared for ev uptake through the use of smart solutions and strategic investment Do you agree? if not what would you add or remove?

Question Title

* 4. At this early stage of infrastructure deployment, we have focused on charge point installers, domestic customers looking to install a charge point at home and local authorities that want to install charge points in public locations. Have we prioritised the right customer groups to support? Who else should we consider?

Question Title

* 5. What mechanisms and media are best suited to inform and educate our EV stakeholders on network aspects of the EV transition?

Question Title

* 6. To ensure that DNOs can prepare and adapt efficiently, do you think it should be mandatory for the DNO to be made aware when EVs are purchased or when charging infrastructure is installed or both?

Question Title

* 7. Our forecast model currently uses DVLA registration data, OLEV grants, and DNO notifications. Can you think of valuable data sources we should be additionally including in our forecast modelling?

Question Title

* 8. Do you think network companies should have access to third party data - such as from Smart Meters and EV chargers – to reduce the cost of investment in network monitoring?

Question Title

* 9. UK Power Networks has a portfolio of over 18 projects related to EV readiness. Are there any additional technical or commercial solutions we should be considering?

Question Title

* 10. Do you agree that the cost of the electrical connection is a barrier to the roll-out of EV infrastructure to on-street charging, at work charging, destination charging and en-route charging?

Question Title

* 11. If connection costs are a barrier to rolling out EV infrastructure, should government and the regulator develop mechanisms to address this barrier?

Question Title

* 12. To what extent should DNOs have a responsibility in addressing the connection cost barrier?

Question Title

* 13. What could a framework look like to help us best identify segments of market failure?

Question Title

* 14. UK Power Networks is an active member of the Mayor of London’s EV taskforce. This working group gathers different interested parties in defining clear near term objectives. How can we ensure collaboration in defining where the infrastructure is required?

Question Title

* 15. If connection costs are socialised to support new EV charge point infrastructure, what is an acceptable forecast level of utilisation of these charge points?

Question Title

* 16. Do you think that utilisation will be relatively low in the first few years of operation as consumer confidence grows? If so how should utilisation risk be spread across different parties fairly?

Question Title

* 17. We have an EV newsletter, EV heat maps, EV guides and provide information on our EV website and hold EV sessions in our connections forums. Did you know this information was available?

Question Title

* 18. Which information is most relevant to you?

Question Title

* 19. How can our heat maps be improved?

Question Title

* 20. Are you familiar with our EV Connection Engineering Standard? Is there any way we can improve it?

Question Title

* 21. At the moment, generation and demand connections are treated differently, do you think discharging of an electric vehicle (i.e. V2G) should be treated differently to charging the same vehicle from a connections point of view?

Question Title

* 22. We recognise that assessing harmonics is a gap in this segment. Would it be useful for us to develop a harmonics standard?

Question Title

* 23. To what extent do you believe Smart Charging will resolve network constraints for EV uptake?

Question Title

* 24. To what extent do you believe the network will need to be upgraded to resolve network constraints for EV uptake?

Question Title

* 25. How do you think that DNOs should best support smart charging?”

Question Title

* 26. We are working with over 60 organisations across our EV portfolio including government, charge point operators, local authorities, major fleet owners, vehicle to grid technology developers, universities, energy suppliers offering EV tariffs and other utilities around the world. Who else should we be engaging with?

Question Title

* 27. What industry do you represent

Question Title

* 28. What is your company name?
