Thank you to everyone who took part in and applied to the Electric Nation Vehicle to Grid project – we really look forward to sharing our findings shortly.
The project recruited 100 Electric Vehicle (EV) drivers…
… and those eligible trialled a domestic Vehicle to Grid (V2G) smart EV charger worth £5,500.
By plugging in at specified times participants were rewarded, and the charger could be kept at the end of the trial for just £250.
The Electric Nation Vehicle to Grid project has recruited 100 qualified applicants to trial state of the art domestic Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Smart Charging in order to help Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) and others to understand how V2G charging could work with their electricity networks. This will allow DNOs to see what V2G looks like as a service, so it can be made available to everyone. By helping to balance variations in the national energy production and consumption, you can save money by buying energy when it is cheaper and greener. The project is effectively imitating the future.
All project timelines are subject to delay following COVID-19 outbreak and government advice. The project COVID-19 policy can be viewed here.
Applications that are eligible will need to be authorised to have the charger installed by both the project installer and WPD. This is to make sure that both the electrical system of the property and the local electricity network are suitable for a V2G charger. If both these approvals are received, applicants are able to become a project participant.
* To be confirmed in the individual energy partner Proposition Information documents which will be sent to selected applicants for acceptance. We will have a total of FOUR different energy supplier groups with different trial propositions for the project.
