An electric vehicle for the family

My Electric Avenue takes care of:

– Supply and installation of a charging point for everyone taking part
– Ongoing maintenance of the electric car for the 18 month trial period

Information required during the trial
During the course of the trial, cluster trial participants will be contacted either on paper, online, over the telephone, or face-to-face (to be agreed), by De Montfort University to understand more about their everyday driving and charging habits. De Montfort University will also gain participants’ feedback on the technology. This will focus on adjustments in driving behaviour, their experience in taking part, any concerns they may have and satisfaction levels with the technology.


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 and SSEN at
