Regen market insight paper

Burges Salmon is pleased to be a sponsor of a new market insight paper that highlights how the growth of the electric vehicle (EV) market will create new opportunities for consumers and generators of electricity, and accelerate the transition towards cleaner and smarter energy solutions. The report was launched by Regen at Burges Salmon’s London offices. You can download the report using the link below.

The impact of EVs on our infrastructure networks

The paper answers some of the big questions posed to our policy makers regarding the impact EVs will have on our infrastructure networks. It assesses EV’s place in the UK transport system and strategies to manage the impacts on the UK’s energy network. It concludes with thirteen recommendations for policy that would harness the EV revolution, before which it addresses two key energy questions:

  • At an energy system level, how can EV charging be integrated with overall energy demand and supply to ensure a secure and balanced system?
  • At a local level, how can multiple vehicle charging be supported by a distribution network that has been developed to provide low voltage electricity to meet diversified demand?

The prize for solving the energy challenge is massive – a cleaner, healthier environment – a new industry and new commercial opportunities for transport supported by a transformed and decarbonised energy system.

How can Burges Salmon help?

As a market leader in both the transport and energy sectors, Burges Salmon is uniquely placed to develop the new commercial structures required to support EV networks.
