Electric cars to create new peak hour when they all need a charge

Re: Even our government is years ahead of this lot

Well said. There is a spectacular amount of misinformation in thse comments.

PodPoint sell load shedding intelligent chargers today. Studies were carried out years ago into the localised effect of lots of EVs charging at once (10 nissan leafs in a cul-de-sac with a shared transformer). There was a small problem with excess demand but it was less than forecast and fixed totally by mildly intelligent charging.

Widespread adoption of EVs is unlikely to cause many problems in the UK according to the National Grids analysis. It's their job to look years into the future...
