With the European Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Regulation (AFIR) now in force, national, regional and local authorities need to get EV grid integration right from the outset. 

Smart charging can help integrate more renewables, use existing grid infrastructure more efficiently to connect more grid users, and reduce system costs. By shifting EV charging load that is flexible (and most of it is), every electricity user benefits from lower overall system costs.

In this infographic we present the building blocks to ensure public EV charging is: 

  • accessible, transparent, and affordable for all users; 
  • contributes to greater flexibility in the energy system; and 
  • helps public authorities meet decarbonisation targets.
