Leeds City Council

Case Study Lead: Leeds City Council

Description: Leeds City Council installed six vehicle-to-grid (V2G) chargers across two local authority locations:

The Knowsthorpe Gate is the base for several service areas. Load balancing technology is in use at the site to assist with management of the energy demand. The building is used by staff between 7am and 7pm with vehicle charging typically undertaken overnight when energy demand from the on-site services is low. There are 12 Nissan e-NV200 vehicles that operate from this site and these will be charging/discharging at the five Nichicon V2G units.

Farnley Hall is the Headquarters of the Parks & Countryside service. As well as being the administrative base for the service, the location also serves as one of the depots and workshop sites. There are 8 Nissan e-NV200 vehicles based at this location that will be utilising the V2G unit as well as the existing charge facilities at this site.
