This report covers the completion of Phase 1: Recruit and Build with the exception of the V2G trial stream. Phase 1 included the recruitment of all trial participants, installation of charging hardware in homes and the development of an aggregation platform to manage and control charging.
AGL’s Electric Vehicle Orchestration Trial has received funding from ARENA as part of ARENA’s Advancing Renewables Program. The trial comprises three streams:
- A trial of orchestrated residential EV smart charging comprising 200 participants who will have their charging controlled via a smart charger installed in their homes.
- A trial of two emerging charging technologies – vehicle API charging control and Vehicle to Grid (V2G).
- A control group of 100 customers on a time-of-use (TOU) tariff to assess the effectiveness of a tariffication incentive against that of firm charging control.
