The Network Impact Project will determine the connections required for bidirectional electric vehicle (EV) chargers and inform connection standards to the Energy Networks Association (ENA). It also seeks to understand any impact on power quality resulting from the use of vehicle-to-grid (V2G).
Start: April 2018
– 19 V2G charging stations deployed at Northern Powergrid depots and office locations
– Chargers will be used by Northern Powergrid fleet and employees
– Test scripts will be used to provide input and data for various grid constraints and measure the impact of the V2G stations on the local distribution grid.
