Planning of EV fast-charging locations in Slovakia (Project FAST-E SK/CZ)Electric Mobility
For ZSE Slovakia, a member of E.ON Group and charge point operator, the objective was to plan and develop a consumer-driven EV charging network. The Operator intended to deploy fourteen DC fast chargers along the TEN-T corridors, ensuring full interoperability and interconnectivity to a network of networks in neighbouring countries.
The Operator needed to develop network development criteria and select charging sites considering traffic development scenarios, consumer requirements and business needs. In addition, available grid connection and the planning of intermodality hubs were also the target criteria.
The outcome of work comprised planning methodology, a set of selected locations with sufficient number of back-up sites. The intermodal aspects of fast charging network was evaluated and considered for quick charger installations. The part of the support included also evaluation of consumer expectations and competitive service offerings relevant for the EV charging network planning. The gradually deployed EV charging network at urban and long-distance travelling sites is visible on the map of ZSE Drive service.
