An electric vehicle project in Oxford has been awarded a share of a £30m government fund.
The V2GO scheme is led by EDF Energy R&D UK and will develop, trial and evaluate potential business models for fleet operators' use of electric vehicles.
Consortium partners include the University of Oxford and Oxfordshire County Council.
The scheme is one of 21 projects to be awarded a share of a £30m government fund. The investment forms part of its Industrial Strategy.
Transport minister Jesse Norman said: "As the number of electric vehicles grows and their battery capabilities increase, there is a huge opportunity for them to make a significant contribution to a smart grid.
"These projects are at the cutting edge of their field. Just like the visionary designs of Brunel and Stephenson in transport, they could revolutionise the ways in which we store and manage electricity, both now and in the future."
