Electromobility in the UK: Challenges Ahead
- 20 February 2018
- 17.30 - 19.30
61 New Cavendish Street
However, a dramatic growth in EV sales could potentially result in local power shortages and disrupt businesses on a large scale unless billions are ploughed into new power plants, grid networks and charging points. National Grid has already been exploring potential options for the network to meet this projected extra power demand. Recent research by Aurora Energy suggests that the power system should be able to cope provided charging is “smart”. Energy supplier OVO is already supporting the growing market for EVs and related smart grid technologies through the recent launch of a suite of new services.
Our speakers from Aurora Energy, National Grid and OVO will discuss new market opportunities and uptake predictions, all relevant issues relating to the system operation and strategic infrastructure, and the anticipated impact on power and commodity markets, and also present their vision of how electromobility can be achieved successfully in the UK.
Graeme Cooper, Project Director, National Grid
Richard Howard, Head of Research, Aurora Energy
Tom Pakenham, Head of Electric Vehicles, OVO Energy
Moderator: Francisco de la Peña Fernández-Garnelo, London Committee Member, Energy Institute
