Purpose of the social trials

The social trials are designed to give us confidence in the results of the technical trials for two reasons:

  1. To enable a statistical comparison of the behaviour of participants taking part in our technical trials, regarding driving and charging habits to the larger population, and,

  2. To check that the participants within the trials are a true representation of the population as a whole.

The social trials will also enable an understanding of EV customer behaviour and implications for monitoring and controlling EV charging in future.

The My Electric Avenue Project was delivered between January 2013 and December 2015 by EA Technology on behalf of Scottish and Southern Energy Networks (SSEN) as part of the Low Carbon Networks (LCN) Fund suite of innovation projects. As the Project is now complete, this webpage will no longer be updated, however you can learn more about the work undertaken by EA Technology at www.eatechnology.com and SSEN at www.ssepd.co.uk/Home.
