The Electric Vehicle (EV) industry is gaining traction worldwide, fuelled by climate changes, dwindling fossil fuel reserves and
need for effective communication modes. The EV is no longer a science project and commercial viability has been proven by the
likes of Nissan and Tesla. These new technologies bring a unique set of challenges and opportunities, as they live in a complex
ecosystem that brings together the traditional Automotive Industry, Energy and ITS to create an intelligent transport system. EVs
(and Plugin Hybrids) have already arrived in South Africa and should be embraced as an
alternate mobility paradigm.
The EV workshop will explore the implication of introduction of EVs in South Africa by
focusing on:
•
•
•
•
The case for EVs and progress made thus far.
Development of a charging network.
Legislative and policy framework reforms required.
Government support.
ALL BOOKINGS ARE MADE
ONLINE FOR
SA AUTOMOTIVE WEEK
The workshop will be hosted by industry experts from Vehicle OEMs, Charge Network
Technology Providers, Financiers and Government that are at the coal face (or is that the
electron) of the development of this fledgling industry.

SOUTH AFRICA’S APPROACH TO ESTABLISHING THE EV INDUSTRY
The reality is that the Electric Vehicle (EV) is here to stay. World-wide adoption of
the technology is accelerating exponentially and conservative estimates suggest
that 10% of vehicles will have some form of electric propulsion by 2020. The
challenge for South Africa is developing the correct mix infrastructure, incentives
and policies to stimulate the development of a local EV industry and allow the
country to participate on a global level. The talk will consider the approach of the
South African government towards supporting the EV industry and will focus on:
•The dti EV Roadmap
•DST technology innovation support
•uYilo E-Mobility Technology
Innovation Programme
•Standardisation of charging infrastructure
•Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Alliance

SMART MOBILITY
We are all aware of the challenges we face in terms of transportation: Limited
fossil fuels, increasing fuel prices, pollution, global warming, traffic congestion,
etc. So this will not be my focus – rather I’ll put our problem in perspective and
propose an alternative solution. In the process, I’ll be touching on concepts that
may not be well known to the public. These concepts are the seeds and potential
new opportunities in an industry being developed to serve new mobility options
and their supporting infrastructures. These include component manufacturing,
vehicles leasing, communications and energy trading.

BMW I - AUTOMOBILITY CONVERGES
BMW i stands for a new form of future urban mobility, for visionary vehicles and
mobility services, inspiring design and a new understanding of premium which
is strongly defined by sustainability. As social, economic and ecological change
proceeds around the world, new solutions with a special urban focus are needed.
Electric mobility is an essential component in this transformation – and one
the BMW Group firmly believes in. Supported by a holistic suite of new electric
mobility products and services, BMW i is turning a vision into reality.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE UTILITY
The characteristics of the transport sector are changing drastically internationally
with the introduction of Electric Vehicles. Energy use patterns will change in the
future as new technologies such as cars become dependent on the grid. In order
for the grid to adapt to these changes the electricity grid would need to align itself
better for the management of new load types. This gives rise to many challenges
but also creates opportunities for the utility. Power demand may increase
over time but through better management using a Smart Grid this load will be
effectively managed.

THE CASE FOR TRANSPORT ELECTRIFICATION
A VIEW FROM THE FINANCE SECTOR
Oil supplies roughly 94% of primary energy that fuels the physical movement
of people and goods, which is essentially the blood supply of modern economic
activity. This high degree of dependency carries with it a series of implications and
risks for the economy and society, including:Energy Security, Energy Costs, Social
Impacts, Environmental Impacts, Resource Efficiency.
The electrification of surface transport – personal, mass-transit, and freight
modes – can make a significant contribution. In parallel to the transformation of
transport, the energy system as a whole can and will become more integrated,
more efficient, more resilient, and more sustainable. Aside from the substantial
positive impact this will have on the South African economy and society at
large, the new business opportunities that will emerge from this revolution are
compelling.
