Corina Popescu, CEO Electrica @ Grid Integration Of Electric Mobility Forum 2020: The next five years are critical for the development of the e-mobility infrastructure
“Coordination and identification of synergies between different authorities are very important if we want not to waste resources for the implementation of the e-mobility project in Romania. We need integrated concepts that allow us to reach the productivity to implement these systems.
A distribution operator shall not own, develop, manage or operate charging points for electric vehicles, unless distribution system operators have private recharging points for their own use only.
In this concept it seems that the distributor does not have a very important role, although there are voices that say that it is a key point in the development of this infrastructure. In my opinion, the distributor has the role of facilitator in the development of these e-mobiity networks.
The next 5 years are critical for the development of the e-mobility infrastructure. I think that distribution operators play a critical role, they are the heart of the transition from the existing concepts and the current mode of operation.”
The statement has been uttered within the first edition of GRID INTEGRATION OF ELECTRIC MOBILITY FORUM 2020 organized recently by The Diplomat Bucharest.
Electric mobility is the power key-topic of the present demanding a fluent synergy of technology solutions providers, innovators, car producers and energy suppliers. The focus should be maintained on delivering the right technologies to enable a user-friendly integration of electric vehicles into INTELLIGENT POWER GRIDS.
The event benefited from the support of GOLD PARTNERS Engie, Eximprod Grup, PARTNERS MOOn, Polifazer, ACUE, AFEER, World Energy Council, ARPEE, Asociatia Energia Inteligenta, EFdeN, Sea One, Wave, MEDIA PARTNERS Outsourcing Today, Financial Intelligence, Economistul, Romania Durabila, Club Economic.
The development of smart grid concept in power grid has advanced the role of ELECTRIC VEHICLES to grid technology. In recent years, it has seen an increasing interest in the deployment of Vehicle-to-Grid as a service to users of Electric Vehicles. The integration of grid technology allows bidirectional energy exchange between electric vehicles and the power grid.
Consequently, the automotive industry, the power suppliers and the developers of charging stations will synchronize within safe, feasible and effective smart power grids that include and enable the use of electric vehicles and the innovative technology.
The new era of mobility is already here. Critical technology trends in autonomous driving, electrification, and vehicle communication come with extraordinary pressures beyond the here and now.
