In order to improve network planning to enhance customer experience on either EV load-related power interruptions or facilitating quicker connection times, there is a need for more timely and proactive information to be shared with DNOs. This will be facilitated with the ability to ‘get ahead of the curve’ and know when EV charging demand is likely to be seen on our networks before it happens.
The project objectives are:

·         Identification of data requirements, targeting and engagement with key third-party data source companies for early visibility of EV charging connections

·         Address barriers and sign agreements with Data Source Companies

·         Create a database that will link to the data sources and provide the DNOs with the required EV data

·         Conduct a six month trial of the system
Develop proof of concept ready to scale to Business-As-Usual
