Vahanomy welcomes Geospatial Commission report calling for use of location data in EV chargepoints.

Updated: Aug 30, 2023

Vahanomy welcomes the Geospatial Commission report calling for better use of location data in EV charging infrastructure rollout in the UK. This further reiterates and validates the demand for Vahanomy's AI-driven location data analysis tool which is based on 100+ market-researched geospatial data points that analyse the opportunity, viability and risks of potential EV charging locations before they are chosen. so it considers users and protects the capital invested. The Geospatial Commission report published on 20 December 2022 says how location data can help build an electric vehicle charging infrastructure network that works for everyone, everywhere.

As governments worldwide commit to ending the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. A comprehensive, safe and reliable public EV charging infrastructure is critical for the transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to EVs to work for users and all stakeholders in the EV charging infrastructure ecosystem. The EV charging infrastructure needs to expand exponentially in a manner that is suitable to the needs of users, viable for operators and infrastructure investors, and just.

The report identifies how location data can help model future demand, select suitable sites, create a seamless consumer experience and track rollout. To improve the use of location data, the report announces that the Geospatial Commission will:

  1. Launch a feasibility study into how to widen access to demand modelling, to provide planners with data-driven evidence to identify how many and what types of chargepoints need to go where and by when.

  2. Explore the creation of a geospatial dataset for off-street parking, to support planners to identify suitable sites for chargepoints and avoid wasted effort.

  3. Support the government to make chargepoint data more Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) and track how market innovators use the data to create new services which enhance the consumer experience.

At Vahanomy, we look forward to engaging with the Geospatial Commission in the next steps.
