What are we trying to do?
Electric vehicles (EVs) have the potential to transform the way we use energy on a daily basis. Power
cuts and expensive peak demand tariffs could become a thing of the past.
Could you power your house with your car?
Could you power your car with your house?
Would you like to be paid to drive your car to work and power your office block?
What impact will EVs have on our electricity prices?
These, and more, are the questions we will be hoping to answer through this project.
Why are we doing this?
The findings of this project will enable much more efficient use of the energy we generate, especially where we are generating local renewable energy, in order to make energy more affordable and reduce carbon emissions. It will also benefit electric vehicle owners to use the batteries of their vehicles as storage batteries to store energy and use it when it’s more efficient to do so.
Wider community survey
As part of the project we have published a quick on-line survey to to explore people’s perceptions of electric vehicles and the vehicle to grid technology.
We would appreciate your support on the survey.
Please find below the link to our survey which shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to be completed.
