To help meet climate change targets, transitioning from petrol and diesel cars to electric vehicles is essential, but what impact will this have on power supply and demand?

6 December 2018

The Government’s commitment to phasing out petrol and diesel cars by 2040 as part of its ‘Road to Zero’ initiative will mean a fundamental shift in the way we travel and could see peak power demand increase by around 30% according to the National Grid.

Balancing supply and demand will become increasingly complex and will need to become ‘smart’. How can electric vehicles become part of the solution – and not simply a drain on power. By utilising electricity storage technologies, digital monitoring systems and vehicle to grid technologies, electric vehicles can play a significant role in maintaining the system’s balance.

Join us on 6 December to discuss the challenges and opportunities that electric vehicles will create for our future energy system.
