The rapid growth in the electric vehicle market, combined with the increase in electricity generated from renewable sources, will have a major impact on the UK's power network.
All those new EVs will require electricity, which has plenty of people worried that the National Grid just won't be able to cope. So can it? To find out, we decided to ask Graeme Cooper, the National Grid's head of future markets – and the winner of the E-Leader of the Year prize in the 2022 Move Electric Awards.
Because we didn't have access to a posh television studio or anything like that, we took Cooper for a quick drive in a Citroën Ami quadricycle, and didn't let him out until he'd answered everything you need to know about the National Grid and growth in demand of electric cars.
