Christopher works as Data Scientist at The Mobility House to generate a clearer visibility over the flexibility assets such as charging stations and vehicles connected through the backend in the portfolio. In parallel, Christopher continues his work as a scientist with the ISEA Institute, RWTH Aachen University. Christopher's research focusses on applying machine learning and big data algorithms on public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. Key questions are how the existing infrastructure can best be used, how future expansion is best placed, and how electric vehicles can positively interact with the electricity grid. Through the platform www.mobility-charts.de as well as appearances in various conferences, he is a leading voice on charging infrastructure usage in Germany.
As part of electric mobility, he also focusses on buffer batteries and home energy storage systems. He has experience in the fields CAPEX/OPEX projection for power and gas grid assets, power grid and power market modelling, wind energy tenders, and renewable energy technology. He further has an extensive IT and programming background with projects completed in database management and back-end development.

Electric vehicles and charging infrastructure have become established in the mass market. But there are still some challenges when it comes to meeting demand, and the charging process does not always run smoothly. In this session, experts from industry, academia and NGOs will be discussing questions such as: Why is the public charging infrastructure unable to provide reliable charging? How must we adapt the existing charging infrastructure to accommodate commercial and heavy-duty vehicles? How can technology and technical standards keep up with the growth and diversification of the battery electric vehicle fleet? Join this discussion by players working on the front line of this market.
