  • How will an expanded EV fleet affect the electricity distribution network?

    11 March 2016

    My Electric Avenue was a ground-breaking project that set-out to evaluate the likely effect on local electricity distribution networks of a future in which a high proportion of drivers opt for plug-in vehicles. Anthony Smith reports.

    There can be little doubt that the market for electric vehicles is beginning to gain significant momentum: early adopters are turning into repeat customers, and the concept of relying upon personal transportation powered largely or entirely by electricity rather than gasoline or diesel is becoming increasingly mainstream.

    In the UK, for example, approximately 48,000 plug-in vehicles were registered in 2015 compared with just 3500 two years earlier. Plug-in vehicles currently represent 1.7 percent of ...

  • New project launched to cut site energy costs and carbon footprint through optimised energy storage

    09 March 2016
    • Project combines and optimises local energy storage, renewable microgeneration, and site energy usage - including electric vehicle (EV) fast charging
    • Scalable energy storage solution uses second life Renault EV batteries
    • Avoids distribution network upgrades required to meet growing demands such as EV fast charging
    • Enables site-based optimisation of energy usage and exploitation of off-peak energy tariffs

    A PROJECT to manage and optimise complex energy requirements for industrial and commercial sites is now underway.

    The Battery Optimisation and Storage System project (BOSS) creates additional on-site energy storage capacity with repurposed batteries from Renault electric vehicles ...
