6 May 2021 2pm – 5pm Online


The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce (EVET) brings stakeholders from the energy, technology, and automotive sectors to make recommendations to government and industry.

As part of the first phase of EVET we published the “Accessible Data for Decision Making” report in 2020. We are now taking this work further where we have identified specific areas for action.



This workshop will focus on three specific areas:

  1. Achieving system optimisation through shared intelligence:

Industry players should cooperate to develop comprehensive data sharing arrangements (including standardisation where appropriate) and open and interoperable exchange principles and mechanisms.


  1. Making public chargepoints simple and easy to use (through open EV data):

This activity will make recommendations and publish use cases on what data exchange is necessary to make public chargepoints simple and easy to use. Issues regarding physical or electrical matters (e.g. physical access to chargepoints, electrical connection, etc) are out of scope.


  1. Data Access and Privacy Framework:

The first phase of the Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce proposes that Ofgem and Government introduce a Data Access and Privacy Framework for the EV sector to ensure that consumers have full control over their data by 2021. Consumers should be made aware of all data access issues at the point of sale of all EV products and services as well as their powers to control and delete this data.


This workshop will seek views from relevant stakeholders in order to inform the best way forward for this group’s preliminary recommendations.
