Innovation

Serving the electric vehicle drivers of tomorrow

Situation

As part of the new solutions business, E.ON decided to turn E-Mobility into one of its key priorities and become a market leader. Ultra-fast charging (UFC) is a new charging infrastructure technology which presents the opportunity to completely restructure the E-Mobility market by alleviating anxiety caused by the currently limited range of the electric vehicles (EVs). This would turn EVs into a real alternative to diesel and petrol engines. To play a pivotal role in E-Mobility and become a turnkey solution provider, the head of E-Mobility wanted to explore whether ultra-fast charging was indeed an attractive market for E.ON and which role E.ON could play in this market.

Project team innovation

Our approach

Working hand-in-hand with our Danish E-Mobility colleagues, we set up the UFC project to answer a number of key questions about this technology:

  • Why should we do this? Business case and strategic rationale
  • What will we do? Roll-out plan and story with which to approach funding schemes and partners
  • How can we operationalize the project? Preferred hardware, optimal sites, and design options

The ECON team was heavily involved in solving all of these questions - together with our E.ON colleagues throughout Europe, whereby we were partially in the driver’s seat and partially involved in coordinating efforts.
