3 questions to … Peter Guse, Senior Manager Business Development, Vector Informatik GmbH
What can the participants expect during your presentation?
The big question of what will prevail - AC or DC charging - cannot be answered clearly today. Presumably, both types will exist side by side and for different situations.
But what is already clear today is that charging must become smart. But what does smart charging mean? You will find out in my presentation!
One challenge in the expansion of electromobility continues to be the charging infrastructure. What opportunities do you see here to drive forward the expansion?
The expansion will only progress quickly if we can use the existing household connections and connect as many charging points there as possible. That will give electromobility a big boost.
What are the opportunities and risks of charging electric vehicles at home?
The long idle times of our cars at home or in the company can and must be used for low-power charging. This conserves both the battery and the supply network. However, this will not succeed if e-vehicle drivers insist on 22 kW charging power at all times. However, it is facilitated when local generation through PV is integrated. The solution for integrating the charging infrastructure into existing grids with or without PV is called charging/load management, and we will show this in my presentation.
