The number of electrical vehicles on the market is rapidly increasing, and forecasts show that more than 2.5 million Swedish cars can be chargeable by 2030. Along with the increased number of electric vehicles, the demand for public charging and especially fast charging will increase during the coming years.
During this autumn we supported a publicly owned energy company in Sweden to investigate their optimal position in the value chain for fast charging. To tackle the assignment, we created a large factual basis for what battery electrification looks like in terms of the number of electric vehicles and fast chargers, as well as their location, battery capacity and range. Based on the factual basis and several interviews with representatives from the automotive and energy industry as well as other trade organizations, we forecasted the development of fast charging in Sweden. Furthermore, we mapped the value chain with all included actors and their key success factors. Drawing from this, we were able to help the client to investigate possible choices and positions in the value chain for fast charging. By evaluating the choices and positions with respect to the client´s existing position and capabilities we could find their optimal position and provide them with a roadmap for how to reach that position.
Due to the constantly increasing and changing market for electric vehicles, all publicly owned energy companies will in some way have to decide how to address the charging issue, and especially fast charging will be an interesting subset for most of these actors. This will also be an issue of investigation for many other companies related to the automotive and energy industry.
