Published CRP Response to Commons’ Inquiry26th February 2018 / Posted by Carol Quamina
CRP’s response to the Electric vehicles: developing the market and infrastructure inquiry has now been published on the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee website.
The Committee had invited written responses to questions around the impact of the uptake of electric vehicles on the electricity grid and actions needed. Based on findings from the FREVUE and SEUL projects, CRP provided written evidence stressing the importance to take into account the electrification of freight vehicles in the overarching strategy for developing the market and infrastructure for electric vehicles. Due to their particular deployment and charging patterns, these vehicles do not only present an additional challenge to electricity grid capacity but also an important opportunity for grid balancing and renewable energy use.
