In this article, Becky Gough sets out how electric vehicle (EV) charging is increasingly part of the problem of rising peak-time demand, and what needs to change in order for it to become part of the solution. Rather than add to the load, EVs can balance fluctuations of renewable energy as part of a more dynamic grid - a system known as 'vehicle-to-grid'.

Read what a 6-month feasibility study learned about the potential for vehicle-to-grid charging in Birmingham, Berlin and Valencia in a CENEX report, part funded by Climate KIC, here: http://www.cenex.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/sme-project-report1.pdf
