Installation of charge point infrastructure and measuring equipments supplied by Chargemaster, evaluating the use of public infrastructure and monitoring the use of this infrastructure compared to domestic infrastructure to better understand the charging behaviours.
The key issues to be researched are:

  • Timing and volume of vehicle recharging events, and the potential impact on the distribution network
  • The amount of public recharging using publicly available infrastructure provided in this trial across the range of car parks equipped for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging.

This will enable better planning of future EV infrastructure to better support the wide scale adoption of EVs in the future .
