On site there will be a pool of shared electric bikes and cars equipped with Vehicle to Grid (V2G) technology.
We strongly believe that our transport habits need to change, and we need to drastically reduce reliance on fossil fuels for moving around. We intend to provide a pool of electric cars and bikes, which can be booked by the hour or longer by tenants, to eliminate the need for householders to have two cars each. The car pool will be easy to book and more affordable per mile than running your own petrol or diesel car.
A crucial aspect of the EV proposal is that the cars will be able to discharge their batteries back into the grid. So, for example the cars will charge up when there is a big supply of electricity, during the day, when the sun is shining and there is less demand, then discharge their batteries in the evening when people get home and cook dinner etc. This is called ‘balancing’ it helps the site to make use of as much of its own solar energy as possible and reduces the need to import electricity from the grid.
