PESA NSW December 2019 Christmas Party

PESA NSW Christmas Technical Meeting Tuesday 10th December 2019
Electric vehicles, the resources industry and us
One cannot look at electric vehicles without addressing their underlying key technology meaning electricity generation and storage. Electric vehicles themselves have their own design features and manufacturing quirks that are unique to their power source, each of which impact performance and running distance.
In 30 minutes we are going to run through:
The likely size of the electric cars market overseas and in Australia over the next five years, then ten years and post. Each will have its own particular matters of relevance;
Technical aspects of electric cars compared to combustion engine vehicles;
Contents of batteries and their alternatives;
Aspects of charging cars at home, on the road and in office blocks. The various connectors, council restrictions and the differences between charging times all being very important;
The source of the electricity is equally important as the usage, so how enough power can be sourced and its impact on power stations and regional grids like local substations and building power-boards will become critical;
Costs of power, commodity pricing and the available vehicles will be indicative, albeit at best approximate.
A final assessment will be if you were going to but a SUV, car, ute, station wagon or workhorse in the next few months, what would you buy and what are going to be your key indicators for that decision.
Questions will be welcome.
