A common strategic understanding of the requirements of the energy system to support mass EV uptake.

The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce was set up to address a range of questions related to meeting the demands of the wide scale adoption of Electric vehicles (EV) on the electrical networks. The Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce established four Work Packages to consider the following issues:

  • Work Package 1 – A common strategic understanding of the requirements of the energy system to support mass EV uptake.
  • Work Package 2 – Engaging EV Users in Smart Charging and Energy Services
  • Work Package 3 – Smart Charging Technical Requirements
  • Work Package 4 – Accessible Data for Decision Making

 

This is the report of Work Package 1 which was asked to focus on the broader strategic issues involved in preparing the GB electric network for the mass take up of EVs. The methodology, findings and recommendations of Work Package 1 are outlined in this report.
