Barriers to Electric Vehicle Access

It’s impossible to facilitate an Electric Vehicle (EV) without first knowing the charging points. Are there public chargers accessible? Will a private charging point need to be installed? Will work facilitate a private charging point?

For fleet management there are large groups of customers who, by moving to EV truck fleets, cut operation and maintenance costs by 50~%.

For electrical utilities, a robust network of EV charging stations represents a major opportunity for selling more electricity to consumers and for increasing grid efficiencies with new access to more stored energy.

 

  • The producers of EV, how do they target viable customers?
  • The creators of charging points, how do they create a robust network of EV charging stations?
  • The manufactures of electric micro mobility – how do they isolate those who’s average daily commute is less than ??
  • How do they track and collect low energy public utilities? And isolate a location that has the least barriers to access?
  • How to isolate petrol deserts – creating a campaign for the surrounding population to adopt alternative transportation?

 

Data Solutions

  • Combining Parking DATA with EV Chargers
  • Isolating RURAL petrol deserts for EV market penetration (is there an urban take?)
  • EV charge point deserts
  • Isolating commuters with private vehicles who commute less than 8 miles daily

 

Residential charging is vital to the continued rise of EVs. It’s not surprising that people like to recharge their batteries – in their cars and, metaphorically, their bodies – overnight. In addition, the advent of advanced home charging options is helping to allay “range anxiety” for most drivers.

 According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, the length of time needed to recharge an EV is dictated by two factors: how energy-depleted the car is and the type of charger you use.
