  • Marco Rahner, Sales Director Smart Infrastructure, Siemens Southern Africa
  • Ben Pullen, Co-Founder & CEO, Generation.e

The webinar looked at providing:

An understanding of how EVs operate and their benefits to various market role players.

Vehicles typically spend about 95% of the time parked. These idle periods, combined with electric vehicles (EV) battery storage capacities, could make EVs an attractive flexible solution for the power network and smart city aspirations.

Each EV could effectively become a mobile connected storage unit with the potential to provide a broad range of services to the grid.

In this webinar, we shed light on the technical aspects of how EVs operate and how this creates opportunities for end users and the electricity grids across Africa.
