The insights support a variety of EV infrastructure planning components from site selection at the macro and micro level, by scanning a city or analyzing individual locations – to analysing activity centres for chargers to maximize public exposure and adoption.
Siemens will use Streetlight’s data to quantify the impact of EVs on the electric grid for more accurate infrastructure deployment planning.
