Among the many technologies that have made a significant impact on our society over the last few years, very few compare to the impact of electrical vehicles (EVs). As the world addresses climate change, investments in EV technology have risen greatly across nearly all the world’s largest vehicle OEMs. Investments in this vehicle market segment are global. According to a […]
by Dr Bjorn Sturmberg, Dr Kathryn Lucas-Healey and Laura Jones, Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program, Australian National University Vehicle-to-Grid technology presents a huge opportunity by making the batteries in electric vehicles available for grid services, but who will this benefit and who will drive uptake of the technology? The energy sector is working hard to be more customer-centric, see […]
The market for electric vehicle (EV) batteries is heavily focused on increasing mileage life through constant testing, which has led to instrumentation solutions that pair batteries with load cells. Automotive components undergo rigorous testing to meet regulatory standards, guarantee performance, and ensure consumer safety. These components continually require investment in innovation to meet the expressed governmental, consumer and commercial requirements. One […]
The newly-elected Federal Government has appointed Chris Bowen as Minister for Climate Change and Energy, and Tanya Plibersek as Minister for Environment and Water. Mr Bowen will replace Angus Taylor who was Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction. This will be the first time since 2013 that Australia has had a Minister for Climate Change at the federal level. Ms […]
A 12-month, $3.4 million electric vehicle (EV) smart charger trial will kick off in three states to give network operators a better understanding of how smart chargers interact with the grid. As part of the trial, smart chargers have been installed at the homes of more than 160 EV owners in Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT. These smart chargers not […]
AGL and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) have installed 200 electric vehicle (EV) smart chargers in homes as part of an $8 million investment to test the capabilities of charging technologies. The Electric Vehicle orchestration trial will take place in homes across New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and South Australia, and it will help AGL and ARENA accelerate the […]
