What is the problem that needs solving?

The uptake of EVs is accelerating quickly and is expected to continue to do so. While the UK can generate enough electricity to charge these vehicles, charging more EVs would have a greater impact on local electricity networks, especially if it coincides with existing peak electricity demand which is usually between 06:00-08:00 and 17:00-20:00 on weekdays.

This trial of bi-directional energy services with up to five different energy suppliers provides a much greater use of energy flow of the stored energy within the vehicle battery which we can potentially utilise to support the LV network during times of this peak demand period.
