Do you drive an electric car?

A project to trial smart charging solutions between domestic charge points and the local networks has been launched in the UK.

Electric Nation is seeking to recruit 500-700 people buying or leasing electric vehicles (including pure electric and plug-in hybrids) to take part in a trial to ensure the UK can charge electric vehicles at peak times as the numbers of EVs rise.

This will take place in the Western Power Distribution (WPD) areas in the South West, South Wales, West and East Midlands.

After six months the trial may broaden out to the rest of Britain if there are still places free. The free smart charger is only available to people who have not previously taken advantage of the OLEV home charger grant.
