Data loggers installed

17 – 22 February 2015

The Rapid Charge Network team are taking to the roads next week to install data loggers in electric vehicles the length of the network as part of the project’s study.

Thanks to the overwhelming response from drivers in the UK, the project reached its target of over 40 vehicles who will all have a data logger installed in their cars. This will be vital in helping the project to study the benefits that the installation of a network of multi-standard, rapid charge points can bring.

The data loggers will provide Newcastle University, one of the project partners, with real-time data of how people use the Rapid Charge Network. It will monitor location, journeys, state of battery charge and charging patterns. The results of this project will be rolled out across other countries, towns and cities in Europe so the successful analysis of driving and charging behaviour during this roll-out is essential and we thank all drivers who are taking part. 

And if you are one of those 40 drivers who are supporting us in this way, we look forward to meeting you next week.
