CENEX will lead the Smart Mobile Energy project, supported by the Climate KIC. The Smart Energy Project will investigate how cities can increase energy efficiency and decrease carbon emissions by integrating vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology into the existing energy infrastructure at district and city scale.
The innovative programme will explore how EVs can support energy infrastructure through V2G, using EV batteries as short term storage to manage energy demand at district and city scale in Birmingham, Berlin and Valencia.
Through this pilot, Cenex will evaluate the potential network impacts and business case of V2G in three major European cities. This is important to ensure timely uptake of V2G in the UK and across Europe to help manage the predicted increase in demand on the electricity grid as a result of the growth in EV uptake.
