  • Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks worked with EA Technology and a range of partners to deliver the My Electric Avenue project, which was part of Ofgem’s Low Carbon Networks fund and ran from January 2013 to December 2015.

    The project sought to test two types of innovation: commercial innovation, to see if a third party delivering a project could accelerate innovation; and technical innovation, to understand the impacts of clustered electric vehicle (EV) charging on low voltage (LV) networks and whether technology could manage these impacts.

    After 3 years of delivery the project has provided crucial insights into the driving and charging habits of over 200 EV drivers, as well as the ability to manage EV charging during periods of peak demand to defer or remove the need for reinforcement of a network to cope with the increase in EVs. 

    For access to all the findings and associated media, please visit the My Electric Avenue website.

    If you would like to access the project’s raw data, the project files are available for download here.

    For further information on the project, or our follow-on activities investigating EVs and their impacts on the networks, please contact futurenetworks@sse.com
