EVolution2 is a company wide initiative that is addressing five areas of change that UK Power Networks will address to prepare for the uptake of electric vehicles. This programme of work is a reflection of our EV strategy published in 2017.

The project focuses on five key areas of work:

  1. Policy influencing and stakeholder engagement
  2. Strategic planning
  3. Procedures and standards
  4. Customer end to end process and connections offerings
  5. EV response plan and business change

Electric vehicles represent the biggest change to the low voltage network in history. The way we prepare the company for such disruption is fundamental in enabling the low carbon transition. We are collaborating across the company and putting innovation and value to customers at the centre of our strategy.

We have a wide portfolio of projects that look at the future impact of electric vehicles. For more information visit:
