Trial of UK’s first road of electric cars

The UK’s first road of electric cars – ‘the street of the future’ – has been created in Marlow by the ‘My Electric Avenue’ project.

Nine neighbours are now receiving delivery of their all-electric Nissan LEAFs to use over 18 months in order to test a new technology that will monitor and control the electricity demand from charging electric cars.

The project, which is led by EA Technology and hosted by Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) aims to discover essential learning about managing the local electricity network as sales of cars with ‘plug-in’ capability continue to rise.

My Electric Avenue is focusing on how best to manage the network when a large number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) charge in the same street at the same time.
