about us

EV-elocity is a research and development project looking at increasing the uptake of electric vehicles through helping consumers to monetise their investment using vehicle-to-grid (V2G) innovation. The project is exploring new technologies, encouraging behaviour change and developing business models that will enable the sharing of the value V2G can bring to the grid, local and regional businesses and the consumer.

Our ecosystem of partners is looking to demonstrate vehicle-to-grid in a range of real-world situations to gain technical, customer and commercial insights into this emerging technology. The project will demonstrate the value of this offering via different case studies with a view of scaling deployment across the country and internationally.

The EV-elocity Project is funded by The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and facilitated by Innovate UK.

Vehicle-to-Grid at Leeds City Council

Leeds City Council have completed the installation of six vehicle-to-grid (V2G) chargers across two local authority locations. There are five units installed at the Council’s busy Knowsthorpe Gate site. These units supplement existing charge point facilities which in turn support a number of the authorities’ large electric vehicle fleet. The …
