Electric vehiclesProject AGL Electric Vehicle Orchestration Trial
This fourth Lessons Learnt provides early stage outcomes of the charging data trials and ongoing customer survey insights.
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 with200 participants havingtheir charging controlled via a smart charger installed in their homes.
- A trial of two emerging charging technologies–vehicle API chargingcontrol (100 vehicles) 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.
With the recruit and build part of the smart charger and vehicle API trial streams complete as of the last reporting milestone, activities during this milestone period have focused on the test program.
The test program to date has included scheduled charging control and ad-hoc charging control
