The EVPlanner software has been designed to provide functionality for managing the EV charging infrastructure planning and deployment. The key target for the planning is to reduce the deployment cost (not just the cost of the poles, but also civil works and engineering) and maximize the revenue from the infrastructure investment. The planning and optimization is a continuous process, not a one-off activity prior to the implementation.
Cost savings achieved with a thorough planning process aided by this tool can be as high as 30-50 % compared to a non-planned implementation. The software is currently used by customers in Finland to support the planning process.
