The project is aiming to show how V2G technology can work around potential problems with the national electricity grid when EV uptake eventually increases, bringing with it increased demand for electricity.

To charge an EV, it put as much demand on the national grid as another home, showing the need to find a solution for the increased demand. The V2G technology allows users to put energy back into the grid at peak times, reducing the need for additional generation.

A week after the Electric Nation V2G project was launched, 200 EV drivers had already applied to join the scheme, with the following data emerging
