Presentation

VBEV project - Supporting the development of bi-directional vessel charging

Following the installation of UK's first marine charging network in Plymouth, Aqua superpower is leading a consortium to explore the development of a UK demonstrator of bi-directional vessel charging. The Virtual Bunkering for Electric Vessels (VBEV) project will focus on emergent bi-directional charging technology developed, demonstrated and in early release for road vehicles. This game-changing technology has already demonstrated that it can effectively enable electric vehicle drivers to reduce their energy costs and cut carbon by accessing greater levels of renewable technology at off-peak periods and discharge energy when needed.
