Network Wide Electric Vehicle Forecasts
|Network Wide Electric Vehicle Forecasts
|Ausgrid is the largest distributor of electricity on Australia’s east coast, providing power to over 1.7 million customers. The Ausgrid network is made up of substations, powerlines, underground cables and power poles, spanning 22,275 square kilometres

|To provide a projection of electric vehicle maximum demand impacts by postcodes in Ausgrid’s network (225 postcodes in total) that can be used as an input to Ausgrid’s post model adjustment for the zone substation spatial demand forecast for 2020.
|Evenergi, with the collaboration of Ausgrid, has built a bottom-up modelling tool (GridFleet) for predicting the impact of electric vehicles on distribution Networks. By applying the fundamental principles and algorithms of GridFleet’’s typology-based methodology, the following method was adopted to deliver this project:
|The data was used by Ausgrid in its submission to the Australian Energy Market Operator for billions of dollars of annual investment and will help drive better investment decisions around network planning.
