Network Optimisation for eV


To meet European and Flemish climate targets, energy needs to be used more efficiently and sustainably. Electric driving fits in with that, because it can significantly reduce CO2 emissions. To make electric driving possible, more charging points are needed soon. But at which locations should these be located and how much capacity is needed? With a data-driven location strategy, you make the right choices.

Rapid and drastic expansion of additional charging infrastructure is needed to serve the rapidly growing electric vehicle fleet. Energy suppliers, petrol station operators and retailers with their own parking spaces are therefore investing heavily in installing new charging stations.

Investments that pay off

When making the right investment decision, a number of factors are decisive in optimising the Return on Investment:

  • In which locations is there the greatest need?
  • How much capacity needs to be provided, taking into account passage, vehicle fleet, demographics and future evolutions ?
  • Are there practical, technical or capacity constraints at a chosen location? 

So the smart development of an investment-intensive network of charging stations requires the right information.

Data as a reliable source of energy

GIM's data-driven approach allows investors and operators to make decisions based on reliable data sources.  GIM's Belmap data teach you which locations have the highest demand for infrastructure. Moreover, we work with partners such as TomTom and Ecomovement, giving you a razor-sharp picture on traffic flow, travel behaviour and existing electric charging infrastructure.

Based on this data, our experts make advanced accessibility analyses. We determine the service area for each location, based on need and driving times. Moreover, we pour all this into a clear location intelligence tool, which you can use to make analyses and draw up reports yourself.

Do you also want to make data-driven decisions about your charging infrastructure? Contact our specialists without obligation.
