My Electric Avenue 'Turning the Corner' finale event - 3 December 2015 - register now!
With this Ofgem Low Carbon Networks Fund project coming to a close at the end of December 2015, this is an opportunity to share learning and results with stakeholders from across Government, the utilities and automotive sectors. We will also reveal details of a Legacy Initiative that will provide the platform for collaboration between the automotive and utilities sectors. It's also a great opportunity to extend huge thanks to all trial participants and cluster champions, who made My Electric Avenue possible.
Date: 3 December 2015
Time: 10.00 – 16.00
Venue: Institution of Mechanical Engineers, 1 Birdcage Walk, London SW1H 9JJ
Speakers from Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution, EA Technology, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Cenex and Nissan will bring the day alive with insight and comment on the future outlook of low carbon vehicles on our electricity networks.
Plug the date into your diary. We look forward to seeing you there! To register to attend, please email your contact details to email@example.com
My Electric Avenue is a project led by EA Technology and hosted by Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) with the aim to discover essential learning about managing the local electricity network as sales of cars with ‘plug-in’ capability continue to rise.
My Electric Avenue's focus has been on how best to manage the network when a large number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) charge in the same street at the same time. It is also the first trial that directly controls domestic EV charging to prevent underground cables, overhead lines and substations being overloaded. The project has proven a solution that could avoid the need to dig up the roads to install higher capacity electric cables. Over 200 electricity customers have taken part in our trials, each driving an EV and each having access to a charging point. Trial participants’ acceptance of having their EV charging controlled remotely has been gauged through surveys and interviews; we have been able to see how often each person’s EV charge is being switched off by Esprit, and we have found out about driving and charging behaviours.<
The My Electric Avenue trials have now been completed and decommissioned. The project is sharing what it has learnt about the charging of clusters of electric cars, on this website, through events and other communication channels.
