The OpenLV ‘Business and Academia’ video provides a snapshot of some of the projects that have taken place with a range of businesses and academic organisations, and the benefits that are possible from accessing local electricity data.

The OpenLV platform has been using EA Technology’s LV-CAP™ platform to host participants’ apps and make data available in a secure, managed way. Paul Beck from Lucy Electric GridKey explains how his company has been looking at the charging of electric vehicles, and only charging EVs when data provided by OpenLV has shown that there is spare capacity.

A wide range of other perspectives are shared in the ‘Business and Academia’ video, including from David Russell, EA Technology; Sam Rossi Ashton, Western Power Distribution; Joe Hayden, Haysys; Robert Brown, Orxa Grid; Andrew Padmore, Egnida; Julio Perez Olvera, Imperial College; and Phani Chitti, Bristol University.
