Plug-in vehicle project results to be revealed at Cenex LCV

Published:  12 September, 2016

Transport consultancy TRL will be revealing the preliminary results of stage one of the Consumers, Vehicles and Energy Integration (CVEI) project at Cenex LCV 2016.

Stephen Skippon, principal human factors researcher at TRL, will present key findings from the first stage of the project during the Energy for Transport seminar session on Wednesday.

This includes analysis of market and policy frameworks, business propositions, vehicle and energy infrastructure systems and technologies and consumer attitudes towards plug-in vehicle adoption and charging.

The £5million project, commissioned and funded by the Energy Technologies Institute’s (ETI), aims to understand the changes to market structures and energy supply systems needed to encourage wider adoption of plug-in vehicles and their integration into the energy system.

TRL is leading delivery of the project, supported principally by Element Energy, Baringa Partners and Cenex. Other team members include EDF Energy, Route Monkey, EV Connect and the University of Aberdeen.

Denis Naberezhnykh, head of ultra-low emission vehicles at TRL, said: ‘The findings will help inform stage two of the project, which includes real-world trials to enhance understanding of consumer and fleet responses to plug-in vehicles and managed charging schemes, and thus to test and validate the systems designed in stage one.’

TRL will also be showcasing other innovative projects at LCV, including MOVE_UK and GATEway, which can be found on stand C1-01 and C1-02 in Hall 1. Key representatives will be on hand to provide updates on both projects and discuss future transport and mobility topics, such as connected and automated vehicles, ultra- low emission vehicles, air quality and sustainable transport.
