This presentation will give an overview of UPS’ central London fleet electrification project and the smart charging solution UK Power Networks Services implemented.

UK Power Networks Services has designed, developed, and implemented a smart electric vehicle charging system, integrating energy storage and active network management, to power UPS’s central London delivery fleet for what is believed to be the first time in the world on this scale.

Freight electric vehicles, like those used by UPS, can use up to ten times as much power as a typical home when charging. This means that charging large numbers of trucks simultaneously puts significant demand on the depot’s electricity supply.

In a major new technological advance, this project enables UPS to increase the number of 7.5-tonne electric trucks operating from its London site from 65 to all 170, without the need for the usual expensive upgrade to the power supply connection.
