My Electric Avenue achieves first series of Ofgem delivery targets

My Electric Avenue achieves first series of Ofgem delivery targets

 
My Electric Avenue has now achieved all Successful Delivery Results Criteria (SDRC) for 9.5 – recruitment of both Technical trial participants and Social trial participants to the My Electric Avenue trials.
 
The project, which is led by EA Technology and hosted by Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) aims to discover essential learning about managing the local electricity network as sales of cars with ‘plug-in’ capability continue to rise.

We have reached our minimum target for the Social trials, but there are still a few spaces left but these are extremely limited and will go fast!

We’ve now recruited more than ten ‘electric avenues’ – groups, or ‘clusters’, eight of which have ten people or more – where each person will drive an electric car for 18 months to trial a new technology.

We are preparing for when electric cars will be commonplace. The technology will monitor and control the electricity demand from charging electric cars. It is a solution that will save expensive and disruptive work being carried out to upgrade the electricity network and avoid the need for roads to be dug up.

Our ‘technical trials’ are fully subscribed, and although we have reached our minimum recruitment requirements for the Social trials there are still some spaces left, but be quick! they will go fast! For more information, click here

Ofgem, the energy industry regulator, is funding the project through its Low Carbon Networks Fund, supported by Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution, the company that is responsible for maintaining the local electricity network in certain areas in Britain. This will make sure that the lights stay on and that a low carbon, healthy future is possible for all, whilst avoiding unnecessary increases in your electricity bill. 

This website provides more information about My Electric Avenue and it will communciate the learning outcomes form the project.

My Electric Avenue is the public identity for the Low Carbon Networks Fund Tier 2 project called 'I2EV'.
