What Impact Will Electric Cars Have on UK Power Grid?
A resource to estimate the impact that greater use of electric vehicles will have on the national grid has been developed by a team of experts at Northumbria University.
Dr Ghanim Putrus, Reader in Electrical Power Engineering in the School of Computing, Engineering and Information Sciences, led the project to create an easy-to-use tool that allows policy makers to predict and prepare for the increased use of electric cars and how it will affect the power network.
The development of the new grid capacity calculator was a collaboration involving Northumbria University and Charge your Car project, a government programme which is currently installing electric vehicle charging points across North East England.
