Taking part


People applied to be trial participants as part of a group of at least ten participants and all applications were subject to eligibility and availability. There was no guarantee of success due to a number of factors such as:

–    the type of local substation
–    the arrangement of the feeder from the substation
–    the suitability of the area for EV recharging
–    the electrical condition of the property

Taking part in the trial was also subject to financial acceptance.

Social trials

Those who were unable to, or preferred not to, take part in the ‘cluster’ trials applied to take part in ‘social’ trials, where there was no requirement to apply as a group, and no geographical limitations. Standard rental agreements applied for the leasing of an electric Nissan LEAF, and participants had their driving and charging habits recorded. No additional equipment was installed as part of the social trials. Both of the trials are now closed to new submissions.

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.
