Centre for Net Zero launches trial with eminent global research centre, J-PAL
The Centre for Net Zero announced the launch of a new field trial with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), testing consumer preferences for automated electric vehicle (EV) charging tariffs and grid impacts of automated tariffs. The trial is being funded by J-PAL's King's Climate Action Initiative (K-CAI), which is dedicated to testing and scaling impact solutions at the heart of climate change and poverty issues. The trial will run until March 2024 and full results will be shared in 2025.
Claire Walsh, K-CAI project director at J-PAL said: “We are thrilled to support this evaluation to generate much needed evidence on how to optimise the grid to support the transition to electric vehicles—a crucial part of the clean energy transition. We applaud the team for using this opportunity to learn while they take action on climate change, and share the results so that governments and companies can too.”
