Electric Nation at LCNI 2018

This brochure contains some interim findings in the area of participant customer research. Electric Nation is learning a lot about drivers’ charging behaviours by using data from their smart chargers to understand the potential mass impacts on electricity distribution networks, and how these might change depending on plug-in vehicle types and battery sizes in the future – as the mix of pure EVs v Plug-in Hybrids is likely to change.

The ‘What we’ve learnt so far’ brochure is available as a PDF download in the Resources section of our website.

Nick Storer, Electric Nation’s Project Manager, also gave a presentation at the event about these findings, and about latest progress with the project overall.

Also at LCNI, there was a lot of interest in the new Network Assessment Tool, which can forecast the potential impact of EV take-up on particular low voltage (LV) substations across the WPD license area. The project team was busy providing demonstrations of this tool to delegates at LCNI.
