Vehicles and Grid

Explore the fundamental technical, economic and societal challenges to be addressed and to explore pathway requirements should the UK move to a high percentage of more electric vehicles in the near future

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs) are emerging as promising alternative solutions in the transportation sector to reduce or replace the dependency on fossil fuels and combat emissions commensurate with conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

Road transportation accounts for roughly one-third of the UK energy usage thus the migration of some or potentially all of this energy usage from liquid to electrical networks will have major implications on the electrical power supply industry. To date, opinion on the impact of future “more electric” vehicles on the UK electrical power supply network varies from a minimal to major disruption.

The focus of this meeting is to investigate these issues. While there have been many vehicle-to-grid (V2G) seminars discussing the potential schemes and equipment to support future more electric systems, this meeting aims to explore the fundamental technical, economic and societal challenges to be addressed and to explore pathway requirements should the UK move to a high percentage of more electric vehicles in the near future.
