UK GOV: Strategy out our vision for recharging infrastructure in the UK #ev #plugin #charging

January 2014 § Comments Off permalink

The shift to ultra-low vehicles presents unique and economic opportunities for the UK. It offers the to decarbonise road transport still enabling mobility and the kind of green jobs and that we require to help our economy.

Reducing transport will require a range of technologies and solutions in the future. To support this transition, the is committed to growing the market for vehicles in the UK. This is due to the contribution they, and other low and ultra-low technologies, can make across our and environmental priorities – climate green growth, energy decarbonising the electricity system and air

and businesses also benefit a favourable tax regime . with vehicles receiving Vehicle Duty and Company Car Tax exemptions, as as Enhanced Capital Allowances.

The Places programme has made available to match-fund eight projects installing and trialling infrastructure in the UK to support the Carbon commitment to install up to 8,500

Recognising that continued in recharging infrastructure will be by private sector investment, could be constrained by the ability to finance, there is the potential for the Investment Bank to provide financial solutions for appropriate vehicle infrastructure projects.

The is also supporting low and ultra-low vehicle Research, Development and focusing on priorities identified in with the UK Automotive Council. Strategy sets the framework for the of recharging infrastructure to support in vehicle owners and industry in the UK. By a clarity of approach and removing for those wishing to invest in, or benefit from such this Strategy aims to and accommodate the expected growth in the vehicle market.

In the period up to 2015, we expect to see of thousands of plug-in vehicles on the in the UK, with manufacturers bringing numbers of models to market. In the from 2015 to 2020 we to see the number of plug-in vehicles as costs reduce and vehicle bring forward a wider of plug-in vehicle models in to meet their stringent CO2 targets under the European New Car CO2

The rate at which the plug-in market develops in the UK will be by a range of factors, such as acceptance and oil prices, which are to predict. Independent forecasts that hundreds of thousands of vehicles could be on the road by and we need to be equipped to deal this; but we also need to be to accommodate an even more rate of growth should occur.

The evidence base

The Places programme is the key mechanism for the roll-out of recharging infrastructure in the UK and learning to inform the future a national network. In addition, the Technologies Institute Plug-In Economics and Infrastructure Programme and the Strategy Board’s Ultra-Low Vehicle Demonstrator Programme informed this Strategy. We also worked closely the energy utilities, plug-in manufacturers, chargepost manufacturers and sought insights from a of global initiatives.

Our vision for

Our approach is not to mandate ‘a chargepoint on corner’ – this is not necessary to market grow and would be Rather, for plug-in vehicles to to, and be a viable solution for, we want recharging infrastructure to be convenient and safe. We want to see the of recharging taking place at at night, after the peak in demand.

Home recharging be supported by workplace recharging for and fleets, with a targeted of public infrastructure where it be most used, allowing to make the journeys they

Recharging at home

Recharging at at night, off-peak, is not only convenient for drivers, but also the environmental and economic benefits of vehicles by using cheaper, carbon night-time electricity It also makes the best use of electricity network capacity.

To people charge at home as as possible, the Government is:

Given the current favourable regime, running cost and the opportunity for businesses to differentiate and demonstrate their leadership on plug-in vehicles make sense for many businesses. 
To businesses respond to these we are:

establishing a Permitted Right that will landowners to install plug-in chargepoints in car-parking areas the need to apply for planning removing a barrier for those in installing chargepoints;

enabling whose emissions are caught the Carbon Reduction Commitment to electricity used to charge vehicles from their electricity consumption. This businesses with workplace will not face additional

supporting the Plugged-In projects to install chargepoints in Recharging in public places majority of recharging is likely to place at home and at work, so an public recharging infrastructure be underutilised and uneconomic. We want infrastructure to be targeted at key destinations, consumers need it, such as retail centres and car parks, a focused amount of on-street particularly for residents without parking. 
Although central and government is currently playing a key in establishing the early public in the longer term a commercial needs to develop.

Public needs to be easy to locate and to access, to give the public the that they need to the full range of their and to support the commercial case for charging.

To ensure appropriate and ease of access we are:

a National Chargepoint Registry will allow chargepoint and operators to make information on infrastructure, including location, in one place;

supporting a common for plug-in vehicle smartcards by the Plugged-In Places to access infrastructure, making it easier for to access more than one

challenging industry to specify, by the end of the back-office requirements that users to easily access provided by different schemes . As the first step we are developing a system to allow the back-offices of the Places, and other infrastructure to communicate with each (a central whitelist); and

supporting the Plugged-In Places to install chargepoints in public where they are most 
To make public infrastructure to install and to improve the commercial for installing it we are:

establishing a Development Right that the requirement from local and owners of publicly accessible car to apply for planning permission to chargepoints;

working with to remove regulatory barriers . will consult this on an exemption that makes it that chargepoint owners and can sell electricity via chargepoints at the rate; and

making data available on how public recharging installed through the Plugged-In is used, to help inform viable business models. 
We plug-in vehicle owners to be to recharge quickly when need to. Industry favours to a dedicated plug-in vehicle connector (the IEC62196-2 2) to allow faster recharging than are possible with a plug.

Given this direction of travel, the Plugged-In will start to install infrastructure with Type 2 
 Enabling longer journeys 
We plug-in vehicles to become a mass-market alternative to conventional We recognise that, while 95% of in Great Britain are less 25 miles, well within the of battery electric vehicles, purchasing decisions are influenced by the to travel further. 
Plug-in and extended-range electric vehicles, chargers, battery swap and ownership models all have the to help plug-in vehicle undertake longer journeys. We are a range of approaches for extending through the Plugged-In Places, plans to install around 50 chargers at key locations.

We have included plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles within the of the Plug-In Car Grant.

Making the The Plug-In Vehicle Infrastructure

Taking the Strategy forward

We set out much in this Strategy we need to deliver. However, will require the combined of many.

Local leaders and initiatives will have an role in driving activity to infrastructure fits with needs and priorities. Electricity need to factor in additional from plug-in vehicles as plan to reinforce the grid and how to introduce smart grid Electricity suppliers have a opportunity to develop new tariffs for vehicle owners and commercial for the provision of recharging infrastructure.

Businesses and investors need to act on the new opportunities
that recharging infrastructure including provision of auxiliary such as media, communications and services.

Given this range of different parties need to be brought together to this market a success we are the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Electric Vehicle Group, the Retail Association and the Energy Association to, by the end of the year:

develop on the most cost-effective way to ensure recharging occurs 
We not stop here. This is a market and, for this we will provide an update to document at the start of 2013.
