Elexon’s response to the DFT’s consultation on Electric Vehicle Smart Charging
Elexon’s response challenges OLEV’s rationale for producing a Phase 2 decision in 2023, noting that there are EV demonstration projects that will run into 2021 and the Smart Meter rollout and MHHS which are not likely to conclude until 2023-24 . Secondly, we found OLEV’s separation of public and private use cases overly simplistic, noting that there are public and private use cases that share characteristics, and could benefit from common solutions. Finally, we encourage OLEV to consolidate its and industry’s work on EVs, e.g. through the adoption of a single repository of EV issues and proposals, to facilitate holistic policy design and the identification of overlap.
