Excerpted from the Evening Standard: London, November 27, 2022 by Bill McLoughlin
Countries across the world must bolster their power grids in order to support suitable numbers of vehicles, a cutting-edge green technology firm has said. In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan has set a target for London to be net-zero carbon by 2030. On November 24, the Mayor announced a further 100 new rapid charging points to be installed across the capital.
Despite praising the Mayor’s push for to bolster e-vehicle numbers, Rami Reshef, CEO of Israeli firm GenCell, said “We need to rapidly expand our grids” in order to meet current targets.
In September, the firm launched its EVOX charging solution for e-vehicles to provide completely green, sustainable energy for cars, as opposed to relying on current power grid sources which are largely supported by natural gas in the UK. Said Mr. Reshef, “If we can add uses which could be injecting power, providing back up energy, or charging electrical cars, then we will be able to make the network more reliable and more resilient.”
“I’m in no doubt that the shift to electric vehicles is imperative to cleaning up our air and bringing down harmful emissions,” Mr Khan said. “It’s vital we don’t take our foot off the pedal now and lose momentum.”
