First results from TRL regarding the CVEI low energy vehicle project will be presented at the Cenex LCV 2016 event in September.
TRL will be revealing the preliminary results of stage one of the Energy Technologies Institute’s (ETI) Consumers, Vehicles and Energy Integration (CVEI) project at Cenex LCV 2016, a UK low carbon vehicle event.
As part of the ‘Energy for Transport’ seminar session on Wednesday 14th September, Stephen Skippon, Principal Human Factors Researcher at TRL, will present key findings from the first stage of the project. This includes analysis of market and policy frameworks, business propositions, vehicle and energy infrastructure systems and technology, as well as consumer attitudes towards plug-in vehicle adoption and charging.
The £5million project, commissioned and funded by the ETI, aims to understand the required changes to market structures and energy supply systems in order to encourage wider adoption of plug-in vehicles and their integration into the energy system.
TRL is leading the delivery of the project, supported principally by Element Energy, Baringa Partners and Cenex. Other team members include EDF Energy, Route Monkey, EV Connect and the University of Aberdeen.
Denis Naberezhnykh, Head of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles at TRL said: “We’re delighted to be able to share the first set of results from the CVEI project. The findings will help inform stage two of the project, which includes real-world trials to enhance understanding of consumer and fleet responses to plug-in vehicles and managed charging schemes, and thus to test and validate the systems designed in stage one.”
TRL will also be showcasing other innovative projects at LCV, including MOVE_UK and GATEway, which can be found on stand C1-01 and C1-02 in Hall 1. Key representatives will be on hand to provide updates on both projects and discuss future transport and mobility topics, such as connected and automated vehicles, ultra- low emission vehicles, air quality and sustainable transport.
