The outcomes of the project and the resulting benefits are:
- Review the grid connection process and assess if this is fit for purpose, considering the increased V2G charging up-take within the next 2-5 years, and provide efficiency recommendations to WPD and the installers.
- Examine how sophisticated dynamic bi-directional energy services based on vehicle battery storage, from a variety of energy suppliers, is valuable for DNOs to anticipate and understand the energy suppliers customer proposition, so they can react accordingly and work concurrently with the suppliers as the services develop in BAU operation.
- Demonstrate, via modelling, to what extent V2G charging can assist WPD with the management of the LV network in various network scenarios, specifically, by simultaneous management of the energy suppliers trading within the networks’ safe operational limits, thus allowing DNOs to understand and plan for a future world in which V2G charging is commonplace.
