Public EV charging performance study
|Project name||Public EV charging performance study|
|Client name||NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment|
|The Client||The NSW Government has established an array of programs in support of net zero emissions by 2056. These include key pillars such as the Future Transport Technology Roadmap and the Future Transport 2056 strategy. The 2056 strategy sets the 40-year vision, directions and principles for customer mobility in NSW, guiding transport investment over the longer term. It is focused on 6 principles:
In March 2020, Matt Kean MP, announced the first stage of the Net Zero Plan focused on the period 2020 – 2030. The Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030 is the foundation for NSW’s action on climate change and goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050. It outlines the NSW Government’s plan to grow the economy, create jobs and reduce emissions over the next decade.

|The Brief||As part of the NSW Net Zero 2050 plan, the NSW Government is undertaking a study to analyse charging performance of BEVs under different public, fast charging scenarios with the objective of disseminating information on BEV charging performance. This information will assist drivers in understanding and planning for publicly charging their vehicle and creating a reliable data-set for internal decision making within the Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE).
|The Approach||Evenergi brought together key industry partners NRMA, Tesla, Hyundai, Chargefox and Geotab to coordinate and deliver a complex vehicle and charger testing regime. A carefully crafted testing regime was undertaken to deliver raw charging and driving performance data via charger-side and vehicle-side data collection. Detailed and time-stamped performance attributes were extracted to deliver clear insights into AC and DC public charger performance across different vehicles and charger power.
|The Result||Evenergi’s abilities to synthesise bulk data provided detailed insights into public charging performance across different vehicles and charger power levels. These insights were presented in raw form and further synthesized into key messaging for public consumption.|
