Cenex has partnered with Clean Energy Live to showcase various vehicle-to-grid projects at this event, which is taking place between 4 – 6 October at Birmingham’s NEC.
Clean Energy Live is produced by Clean Energy News publishers Solar Media, and acts as the definitive trade event for the low carbon and clean energy industries.
Cenex, which bills itself as a centre of excellence for low-carbon technologies, is currently collaborating on five vehicle-to-grid (V2G) projects which will be demonstrated at the event.
These include the Ebbs and Flows of Energy Systems project, funded by Innovate UK, which has been established to explore virtual power plant management technology, and the Integrated Transport and Smart Energy Solutions for Major Urban Developments project which is currently being used to plan train station developments at London’s Old Oak Common.
At the launch of its energy storage products earlier this year, Japanese car manufacturer Nissan teased its vision for the future of V2G networks and announced the launching of a “groundbreaking” pilot scheme comprising 100 Nissan Leaf and e-NV200 owners.
Robert Evans, chief executive at Cenex, said the company sees “huge value” in the business case of V2G applications across the UK.
“[The projects] have highlighted several key challenges to be addressed before full market penetration can be realised. It is our hope that in being at the forefront of this area we can help solve some of these barriers to market,” he added.
Registration for this year’s show is still open, further details of which can be found here.
