    Solar-Powered Car Parks with Battery Storage in New Trial

    A new pilot to demonstrate a solar-powered car park supported by battery storage for drivers to charge their electric vehicles has been launched. The Smart Hubs Demonstrator R&D project will manage the integration of solar, EV charging, and vehicle to grid systems at car parks and transport hubs. Smart hubs that incorporate energy storage systems are expected to increase the ability to charge large amounts of EVs without placing further pressure on the grid as well as bring revenue streams for car park owners, including airports, train operators, local authorities, hospitals and retail centers.
