Western Power Distribution (WPD) has shared its mapped data of future energy scenarios for the first time.
Sales of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are set to exceed National Grid ESO’s projections, according to Cornwall Insight.
National Grid ESO’s Future Energy Scenarios (FES) 2019 – released last week – outlined four potential scenarios for the next 30 years of the energy system. And for the first time, the Electricity System Operator (ESO) used sensitivity modelling to create a net zero scenario.
The increased peak demand from as many as 11 million electric vehicles on UK roads by 2030 could be just 8GW thanks to the use of smart charging technologies, according to National Grid’s latest forecasts.
