Rapid Charge Network: Station Canopy Feasibility Study

This feasibility analysis looks at installing canopies at electric vehicle (EV) rapid charging points. Rapid charging points are planned for two corridors connecting major seaports and airports across the UK and Ireland. The charging points will charge an EV in about thirty minutes. The advantages and disadvantages of installing canopies are discussed along with canopy design factors including risks, maintenance, and design life. UK-based manufacturers of canopies were contacted for their input on designs, materials, and costs. The paper concludes with recommendations for canopy specifications.
