eMobility charging hub concepts

Many fleet operators are currently evaluating the benefits of electrifying their vehicles. At the same time, with more electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, companies need to offer workplace charging services for their employees. In order to install the required charging infrastructure, the specific load demand at potential charging sites needs to be evaluated as it determines the optimal design.
Siemens supports companies and charging infrastructure operators in developing individual concepts for charging hubs based on analyses of (e)mobility user profiles and the expected load patterns over time. The results also include an analysis of the electricity supply and grid connection, as well as regulatory and taxation aspects, software requirements, process definition and operating concept.

Power system consulting

Get ready for future requirements

Distribution System Operators (DSOs) are in the center of today’s transformation of the energy system towards systems characterized by new loads and fluctuating, bi-directional power flows imposed from massive renewable generation. Despite these developments, the existing principles of an efficient, economic and sustainable energy supply remain as important as ever. 

Professional consulting and planning for distribution networks

Handling the immense amount of data which is available on the low and medium voltage grids creates disruptive opportunities and risks. Existing principles and guidelines have to be reviewed, and innovative and integrated infrastructure planning becomes more and more important. Backed by years of experience from a wide range of projects conducted all over the world, Siemens PTI supports DSOs in all aspects of distribution network planning, development and optimization.

Highlighted cases for better distribution networks


eMobility Stress Test

The trend towards electromobility is gaining pace. Distribution system operators are now facing the questions of how their grids will be affected by an increasing penetration of EV charging infrastructure in the future, and if the installed equipment, such as cables and transformers, will have to be adapted to the changing requirements.

Siemens has developed a methodology which allows utilities to assess the impact on their grid based on detailed forecasts of the expected load development for a predefined time frame.


Adapt your planning criteria to the increasing load demand
