EV-Up will allow Network Licencees to better understand the impact of Electric Vehicles (EVs), and the ability of customers to transition to using EVs.
EV-Up will contribute to the development of data sets to improve our understanding of customers’ ability to transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs) based on off-street parking opportunity and customer demographics. This will enable improved understanding on the likely network areas which will see increased domestic demand and better inform future investment programmes. In addition the dataset will complement existing work being carried out in other innovation projects such as NCEWS and Charge.

SPEN are adding forecasting of Heat Pump uptake as SPEN require examination on whether this will improve the usefulness of EV uptake forecasting. It is anticipated that where EV uptake coincides with Heat Pump uptake is where the greatest networks problems are likely to arise. Therefore, it is pivotal SPEN are able to model/forecast effects of both EVs and Heat pumps simultaneously.
