Bureau Veritas launched ChargeScan by BV, an end-to-end solution to ensure electric vehicle charging solutions (EVCS) network reliability thanks to information collected and verified by Bureau Veritas inspectors and hence promotes the further acceleration of deployment of E-Mobility infrastructure.
Whilst the decarbonization of power generation is now very well advanced, the transport sector, which represents almost 25% of total energy demand (IEA -World Energy Outlook 2020), is still largely fossil fuel based. The global ambition of carbon-neutrality by 2050 can therefore clearly only be achieved through carbon-free alternatives to fossil-fuelled cars. The means to do that is the use of renewables via sector coupling, i.e. through E-Mobility and/or Power-to-X technologies (e.g. Hydrogen). And whilst hydrogen is still at conceptual and pilot stage, E-mobility will be growing with a CAGR of 30% during this decade. CHARGESCAN is an end-to-end solution to ensure network reliability thanks to information collected and verified by Bureau Veritas inspectors and hence promotes the further acceleration of deployment of E-Mobility infrastructure.
The end-to end solution covers:
Project management assistance for charging stations under construction:
o Consulting services for preliminary studies
o Technical support and document management for design and permitting phases
o Management assistance for construction, permitting and commissioning
o Training for product and installation
Inspection services for charging stations in operations:
o Regulatory compliance (regulatory and maintenance inspections, grid code compliance…)
o Safety and security reviews
o Network availability (condition monitoring and assessment, repairs & component replacement management)
o Performance monitoring (commissioning, data management, performance testing etc.)
o Wireless connectivity testing
Émissions directes générées par l’activité de l’entreprise.
Émissions indirectes associées à la consommation d’électricité et de chaleur de l’entreprise.
Émissions induites (en amont ou en aval) par les activités, produits et/ou services de l’entreprise sur sa chaine de valeur.
Création de puits de carbone, (BECCS, CCU/S, …)
par les activités, produits et/ou services de l’entreprise ou par le financement de projet de réduction d’émissions.
Avoided Emissions - Avoided CO2 emissions by replacement of fossil fuels with electricity
- For the period running from 2019 to 2030 the amount of avoided tons of CO2 equivalent is:
- 2,0 Million tons according to IEA STEPS (Stated Policies) scenario
- 6,0 Million tons according to IEA SDS (Sustainable Development) scenario
Selon l’AIE, les émissions évitées grâce à la mobilité électrique passeront de -52,7 Mt eq CO2 en 2019 à entre -189,1 Mt eq CO2 (scénario STEPS) et -451,0 Mt eq CO2 (scénario SDS) d’ici à 2030.
20 % de cette croissance sera tirée des infrastructures de recharge publique.
Bureau Veritas entend soutenir 7,5 % de ce marché (entre 5 et 10 %).
ChargeScan contributes to achieve the following SGD:
- SDG 09 – Industry, innovation & infrastructure by upgrading infrastructure and retrofitting industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource use efficiency and greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes.
- SDG 11 – Sustainable cities & communities by reducing the adverse environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality.
- SDG 13 – Climate action by decarbonizing operations through continuously improving energy efficiency, reducing the carbon footprint of their processes.
Global potential for replication
