Dear Colleague,

I hope you have had a chance to look over the agenda for Opportunities for Large Scale Integration of Electric Vehicles, taking place in London on the 9th & 10th February 2011. We have received excellent feedback on the agenda so far, with many key industry players already having secured their place.

As you haven’t registered yourself yet, I thought you might like to see 9 reasons why many of your peers already have:

1. Get to grips with the technical standards that will affect your development. What plugs? What connectors?

CENELEC lay down how technical standards can support European regulation to ensure there are no national barriers to full European eMobility.

2. Take part in the discussions that will drive forward your industry

Join Scottish and Southern Energy, CE Electric, AVERE, Central Networks and Renault UK as they discuss the key considerations for defining a viable business model. Have your say and understand where you will fit into the emerging model.

3. Hear the latest case studies from companies with pioneering approaches

  • Get to grips with managed charging with Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH. They reveal their first findings concerning driving behaviours, charging patterns and battery requirements.
  • Fortum shares its insights into how to translate R&D findings into a commercial offering.
  • EDF Energy reveal their latest results from their collaboration with Toyota as part of the Technology Strategy Board’s Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Demonstrator Programme
  • Renault UK reveals how automakers are planning to tackle the issues of cost, design considerations for the charging interface of the vehicle and battery integration.
  • Essent New Energy share their experiences from their innovative work on the Hoogkerk pilot project

4. Learn how to manage your back office requirements to establish the optimum billing model

Really maximising your commercial potential will rely on ”reselling” electricity – so what could stop you doing this? Scottish and Southern Energy discloses the regulatory implications and outline the billing models open to you.

6. Explore the concept of a ‘second life’ for batteries?

Be part of the group who will discuss and decide on the actions that need to occur in order to turn this concept into a real commercial opportunity. Understand what you can do to capitalise on the opportunity to purchase and lease batteries as an energy storage unit.

7. Learn how to establish a charging infrastructure that can support your EV plans

ESB shares its insights on how to define optimal locations for charging stations in order to roll out a national link-up of the infrastructure.

8. Really get to grips with:

  • How to promote cost and energy efficiency with the Better Place switchable battery model and ”smart charging” network
  • What the real impact of plug-in vehicles on the Electricity infrastructure is likely to be with Ricardo UK Ltd
  • Top tips to weigh up the best strategy to define a business model that will drive your EV programme forward with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants

9. Go back to your organisation armed with an arsenal of new ideas, techniques and contacts
