Video – Expert Workshop: Electricity grid, networks and EV charging infrastructure

An event for local authorities and housing associations – Good Homes Alliance was joined by expert Marc Wynn, Director of Asset Utilities Ltd for an interactive workshop on housing development and the electricity grid.

During the workshop, we explored topics such as electrical networks, distribution network operator (DNO) engagement, grid constraints, EV charging infrastructure and capacity requirements for heat pumps.

We heard how the electricity network operates in order to provide an understanding of why there are grid connection issues and how excessive grid connection costs can derail EV and renewable energy projects.

Strategies and solutions were discussed to solve these ‘issues’ in order for an authority to deliver its projects – EV, renewable or domestic developments.
