||The Plug-in Vehicle Economics and Infrastructure Project is a core element of Electrification of Transport within Test Bed UK. The ETI will utilise the outputs of the project to support, inform and facilitate effective long-term benefits from the investments being made around the UK. The two primary objectives are:
The Electricity Distribution and Intelligent Infrastructure project (TR1002) is comprised of six Work Packages. This is Appendix B to the final report for WP2.4 (Intelligent Architecture), ccovering the Conceptual Business Architecture
- Evaluate the potential role and economics of plug-in vehicles in the low carbon transport system: generate a quantified understanding of the market potential, cost models and carbon benefits case under defined scenarios of infrastructure investments, government intervention packages and finance model options across a number of key plug-in vehicle type/size/capability points; and
- Develop the technology tool-kit for delivering an intelligent infrastructure: create a verified open interoperability architecture and generate information to aid infrastructure planning (e.g. to indicate how many recharging points are needed and where they should be located, what mix of power levels are required, how the impact of plug-in vehicle recharging on the electricity distribution network should be managed, how the overall system can be simplified for consumers, etc).
The purpose of this deliverable was to develop an open architecture (i.e. system design requirements) for recharging infrastructure to enable the system to be operated and managed effectively while also enabling compatibility between different business models. This appendix supports Section 3 (Business Design), and consists of
- Development of the Model
- Evolutionary Models
- Possible Further Use of the CBM
