Land speed record holder joins electric vehicle charging research project

Electric land speed record holder Drayson Racing Technologies is to become one of the first businesses to participate in My Electric Avenue, an 18-month nationwide electromobility trial, conducted alongside its neighbours in Oxfordshire.

The company will be the centre of one of ten ‘charging clusters’ located around the UK, including a minimum of ten partipants each, which will each use a Nissan LEAF for 18 months to trial technology which monitors and controls charging to minimise the impact on the electrical grid.

Most will be residential areas, and each cluster will be based on sharing of the same substation feeder, meaning they will usually be in the same street or close proximity. The project is being led by electricity distribution company EA Technology, and financially backed by government utility regulator Ofgem’s Low Carbon Network fund.
