Case Study Lead: University of Nottingham
Description: One vehicle-to-grid charger was installed at the Hallward Library, which is one of the most iconic buildings of the University Park. A Nissan e-NV200 from the estates fleet of the University of Nottingham will be charging/discharging at this Nichicon V2G unit. The energy demand patterns of the building in conjunction with the carbon intensity from the grid and the availability of the estates’ vehicles to store and supply energy to the building, are some of the variables that will be analysed during the V2G trial.
