We at Drive Electric along with our partner companies EA Technology and Western Power Distribution are running a new charging project named Electric Nation. This project aims to procure between 500-700 participants who will have their charging habits analysed using a free home smart charger which can manage when and how the vehicle battery charges.

The findings of the trial will help electricity network operators to manage the effect of the additional load caused by charging EV's on the local electricity network. This is essential for the security of electricity networks in the future and the decarbonisation of the transport sector which is responsible for approximately 21% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.

If you would like to learn more or to check your eligibility for the project then please consult our website - Electric Nation | Your electric vehicle - Your smart charge

Use our postcode checker to find out whether you are in a WPD area in which the project will be run. Please also be aware that if you are not initially within a WPD zone then after 6 months the project will be opened up nationwide (excluding Northern Ireland). Current EV Drivers can only participate if they haven't previously applied for the OLEV grant on an EV home charging system.

There will also be a Fully Charged Episode coming out soon that will also cover what this project is going to be about.

If you have any further questions then please feel free to post on here and I will do my best to answer any questions you all have!

Thank You!
