The LowCVP is to run a series of seminars at the Energy 2017 exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday October 11. The series entitled The Electric Vehicle Revolution: Managing Impacts on the Powergrid will take place during the afternoon immediately preceding the LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards gala dinner at the same venue. Speakers are already confirmed from National Grid, EA Technology, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, UK Power Networks and Drive Electric.
The afternoon will comprise three half-hour seminars and a longer (one hour) panel session, focusing on issues relating to the impacts of increasing electric vehicle use on the powergrid and how network operators and other stakeholders are preparing for the changes.
