In order to achieve the German government’s climate policy goals, commercial vehicles must also become more climate-friendly. By 2030, about one third of the mileage in freight transport on the roads is to be performed by alternative drive systems. A key approach to solving this problem is the switch to battery-electric trucks. In order for them to be used successfully, even over long distances, not only must a new charging network be established that meets demand, but its connection to the power grid must also be considered and planned from the outset.
This is the subject of the “Easy charging at rest areas: Design of the grid connection for e-truck charging hubs” (“Einfach Laden an Rastanlagen: Auslegung des Netzanschlusses für E-Lkw-Lade-Hubs”) study published in September, which was conducted by the energy think tank ef.Ruhr on behalf of the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure.
In conjunction with its publication, we cordially invite you to take part in the “Easy charging at rest areas: Design of the grid connection for e-truck charging hubs” online seminar on 23.11.2022.
During the seminar, Felix Steck and Lars Jacobsen from the National Centre for Charging Infrastructure as well as Dr. Stefan Kippelt (ef.Ruhr) and Dr. Karsten Burges (RE+expertise) will outline the challenges of connecting charging hubs for heavy-duty vehicles to the grid, identify ways to reduce grid connection capacities and explain how the findings will be taken into account in the planning of a Germany-wide charging infrastructure network for electric trucks.
Online seminar: 23.11.2022, 10:00 am –11:00 am
Please log in 10 minutes early to avoid delays. Participation is free of charge.
