EV owners can use their car to become active members of the new energy landscape, one made up of local microgrids, flexible electricity networks, demand side response, and variable ‘Time of Use’ tariffs.
Community energy groups can deliver low-carbon heating projects at lower cost than the private sector, in addition to bringing benefits such as community ownership, job creation, and reduced energy costs.
Overload – Why ‘grid constraint’ could hobble the clean energy revolution, and how we can solve it without costly upgrades.
Over the coming decades we must transform the ways that we heat and power our lives. Switching to electric vehicles and electric heating will have a huge impact on reducing carbon emissions, but it will also put a tremendous strain on an aging electricity network which already struggles to handle peak loads. To keep the electrons flowing, we must think smart.
UK based solar battery company Moixa is working alongside UK Power Networks, the Distribution Network Operator for the Southeast of England, on a pioneering initiative taking place in the Worthing area.
