The Largest EV Charging Network Coming As U.K-Dutch Look To Interconnect Wind Power Grid

Delivering cleaner energy is the new norm as companies come to terms with the impact of carbon emission, which continues to fuel global warming. Likewise, electric vehicles are increasingly taking over the auto industry as focus shifts to carbon-free cars. Amid the proliferation of electric vehicles, six regional energy companies have inked an agreement to construct a vast network of Midwest EV charging stations.

EV Charging Network

Ameren Illinois, Ameren Missouri, Consumers Energy, DTE Energy, Energy, and Oklahoma Gas and Electric are the companies that have affirmed their commitment to delivering cleaner energy for EV customers. The charging infrastructure up for development should help reduce range-anxiety that has so far prevented people from driving long distances.

The establishment of the charging network seeks to take advantage of the growing number of electric cars in U.S roads. While there are about 1.5 million electric cars at the moment, the number is expected to hit the 18 million mark by 2030. Currently, there are about 100,000 charging station against 9.6 million needed.

U.K-Dutch Wind power Grid Network

AS focus shifts towards emission-less cars, investments towards renewable energy sources is increasing to cater for growing demand. British and Dutch grid operators have opened talks about the possibility of building an electricity interconnector between the two countries. The interconnector is to be used to connect offshore wind assets.

Currently, there are interconnectors linking Britain to France and Ireland. The country is looking to build more interconnectors to increase supply options as focus shifts from older coal and nuclear plants. The interconnection between the Netherlands and the U.K should add 2 giga-watts between the two countries.

Siemens U.S Expansion

Separately, Siemens Energy, spun from Germany based Siemens AG, has confirmed Clinton, Mississippi, as the location for its 60,000 square foot distribution center. The new warehouse will be the hub center for the company’s logistic operations.

The central location of the facility should allow the company to expedite shipping service to a greater percentage. The company will employ ten employees at the start at the River wood Warehouse with plans to expand up to 100 people.
