Event description
A FREE day-long seminar to explore Vehicle for Energy Services (V4ES), covering research, industrial practices and policy recommendations.

About this Event

The increasing penetration of distributed energy resources and electric vehicles necessitates the integration of renewable energy generation and electric mobility in a sustainable urban mobility and energy plan (SUMEP). The realisation of SUMEP needs the use of vehicle for energy services (V4ES), via smart charging and vehicle to grid. V4ES helps improve energy autonomy, reduce carbon footprint, defer upgrade of grid infrastructure, and reduce cost of ownership and use of both energy and transport.

The successful implementation of V4ES relies on

  • Technical Advancements
  • Regulatory Support
  • Viable Business Models.

This day-long seminar aims to explore these different dimensions of V4ES from the aspects of research insights, industrial practices and applications, as well as policy recommendations.

Join us at at V4ES, Northumbria University, on Fri 8th Nov 2019.
