Vehicle 2 grid: call for evidence from BEIS, they want consumers views!

Call for evidence a smart, flexible energy system - Consultations - GOV.UK
(with my emphasis)
As part of our commitment to building a 21st century energy infrastructure, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Ofgem are working together to ensure our energy system can respond to the latest challenges, and take advantage of the opportunities offered by new innovative technologies and services. A smart, flexible energy system offers significant benefits for consumers and the economy, helping us use energy more flexibly and increasing the efficiency of the whole energy system.

Consumers are at the heart of the development of this system, which can give them choice and control over how they use electricity, including any that they generate themselves. This call for evidence sets out our intended approach to realising such a system. We invite your views on how to develop our energy system so that it is smart and flexible, and captures benefits for consumers and businesses. Our approach is firmly rooted in enabling competition and markets to deliver on price, quality and choice, and we want flexible solutions to compete with each other and with more traditional solutions.

The responses to this document, as well as wider engagement, will help shape a plan that we expect to publish in spring 2017. This plan will set out the specific actions we plan to take to remove barriers, improve price signals, catalyse innovation, and shape roles and responsibilities in the shift to a smart, more flexible energy system which meets the needs of consumers and businesses now and in the future.

Innovate UK are also holding events on V2G-

Looks an interesting study but somewhat tight timescales to digest and respond o_O

It would be good if BEIS actively pushed these consultations in the direction of users who would have a view, rather than relying on users to seek these out. Wonder if the forum can provide a formal area for these type of consultations in future?

Newcastle is a suggested (leading) location perhaps due to proximity with a particular manufacturer...ahem..
