About this deal

So the two key figures - 83 TWh per year compared to the 2019 annual demand for electricity in the UK which was 309 TWh - so we will need to make and supply 25% more electricity with EV's. This charger, which is produced in China and licensed to Project EV in the UK, is also known as the ATESS or Growatt, which can make things confusing. It also receives software updates if you connect it to a wifi network, which means it’ll get better and better over time – and if there’s an issue with the machine, a support team can fix it remotely.

All you are doing is repeating that infrastructure needs to keep improving, and needs to improve more than it is - I don't see anyone arguing with that. But I don't see how you arrived at hundreds of chargers being needed at service stations which was your original claim. Any chance you might shed some light on how you arrived at this number? Use the same method you started the charge with to end it. For example if you started with the RFID card, end it with the RFID card. At one point we had a charger per every 4 or 5 EVs. Now it’s 1 per 11. And going in the wrong direction. There has been a lot of coverage even within the EV favourable media outlets. It’s becoming a problem for some people already. And that’s still a tiny tiny minority of EV cars out there. Imagine when we are talking 20M on the roads….I think early adopters can only see how it is now. Rather than imagining 5 cars all competing for one charging point. This is the challenge for infrastructure…it’s fine now for early buyers. It becomes less fine unless the infrastructure improves in line with adoption. And we know already it isn’t. Pod Point has been manufacturing chargers for more than a decade, which means it was a pioneer in the burgeoning EV industry.this infrastructure needs improving/a solution for those w.o. off-street parking - could argue is actually the bigger issue. The green light will flash for up to 10 minutes during the randomised delay stage. The RFID card can override this stage if used again. The Zappi is fantastic – and it’s the only charger to get if you have solar panels , or plan to get an array soon.

The machine also pairs with the Pod Point App, but this app isn’t as highly rated as most others on the App Store or Google Play – and for good reason.All the chargers on this list are 7 kW fast models, giving your car 25 miles of range for every hour of charge – and this is your best choice.

Not including the fact to we need to generate 10% more than demand to cover transmission losses so the above numbers are on the conservative side. Also 10% charging losses not included. And I've not included lorries and buses because I don't know their miles per kWh. I also used 4 mile per kWh to be optimistic as that is considered very efficient. Its Solo 3 has some useful features, like auto power balancing, which alters your charging speed to ensure your home isn’t overloaded. If you’ve not used a home charger before or just need a reminder, this will show you how to use your electric car charging point at home. Not sure where the claim that this therefore means more than 192 charging points are required comes from? If there are enough chargers the average charge time will average out and start to approach the time needed to charge the battery, I thought that was the point at discussion of how many chargers are actually needed? You can't apply an overinflated time due to there not being enough chargers to a calculation of how many chargers are actually needed. Quote "I pay 5p / 7.5p etc per unit for my overnight charge" - How long do you think cheap rate will exist for overnight? It is cheap now because typically demand overnight is about 10-20GW less than daytime but as we get more EV's charging overnight, that balance will swing the other way and we will end up using more at night than daytime so the cost will be the same as the day rate - currently heading upwards above 30p a unit. That's about 4-6 times that cheap rate you enjoy now - may even end up more expensive at night because there is no solar.If you have solar panels, you won’t have as many options as with the Zappi charger, but you can still use the app to make sure you’re using solar energy to charge your car.
