The EVPlanner software has been designed to help with the challenges on infrastructure planning for Electric Vehicles (EVs). The software allows the user to place the poles on a geographical map and the key data for each pole is stored. These data are then utilized for defining the optimal configuration for the network, go through various “what-if” scenarios and plan the timeline for the implementation. The software allows the work to be performed by a team rather than a single individual.
The key functions of the software are:
- the ease of sharing the plans
- centralized storage of the data
- the ability to review various options for building the network
- removing the need for storing the information in a paper format
The above contribute significantly to the quality, speed and cost of the planning. These advantages are especially important in a case where the plan is the result of work by multiple organizations and individuals.
