Register for Tickets
The workshop will include a tour of the infrastructure at Stagecoach's bus depot which is home to 9 electric buses that operate on a Park and Ride service into Guildford.
The workshop is aimed at local authorities and fleet operators who are interested in understanding how battery storage can complement depot-based charging of electric vehicles with large power and energy requirements.
Discussions will include how cost and time savings can be achieved by reducing the need to upgrade the local electricity network, how smart and time-of-use charging can reduce energy costs and how the batteries can be used to support the local grid in times of high demand.
