This project intends to encompass the necessary work to understand the value and further prepare the business for sources of network flexibility such as V2G. A greater understanding and use of mobile battery assets (vehicles) has the potential to defer network reinforcement and support network resilience, facilitating the connection of additional loads and low carbon technologies. It is estimated that the benefits of V2G could deliver in the order of £450 per vehicle (customer benefit) annually based on existing whole system flexibility markets. The project will carry out tests on existing and new flexibility services with the aim of being able to procure similar services under business as usual after the project.
