Car manufacturers Nissan, Ford, Jaguar, Land-Rover and Aston Martin have joined all six of the UK’s electricity distribution network operators (DNOs) and transmission system operator National Grid in backing a new Automotive-Utilities task force “in principle”.
Asset management company EA Technology, which is setting up the task force, said it is working with a partner to secure funding.

EA Technology said the task force met with a “great response” from both electricity network companies and car manufacturers when it was put forward as a legacy project at the presentation of the results of EV charging project My Electric Avenue (MEA) in December.
It said the task force is seen as an “an essential next step in ensuring that EVs and electricity networks work in harmony to facilitate expected uptake”.
