Vehicle-to-X bi-directional charging – what innovation is needed next in the UK?
February 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
Join Innovate UK KTN, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy and the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles to hear more, and give your feedback on future plans to accelerate the commercial deploy.
Join this event to discuss how the UK can innovate to accelerate the commercial deployment of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X), including Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), bi-directional charging solutions.
The mass electrification of transport as part of the UK’s transition to Net Zero provides a potentially significant source of distributed energy flexibility, which can help cost-effectively integrate renewables as well as providing financial benefits to Electric Vehicle owners. While smart charging enables EVs to charge flexibly, the development of V2X bi-directional charging technology and commercial services can unlock even more flexibility from EVs.
Following the UK’s world-leading V2G innovation programme and the recent V2X Call for Evidence, government representatives will set out their thoughts on future innovation needs and invite you to provide feedback to inform options for potential future innovation activity.
