Start-up Sygensys is enhancing the performance and reliability of electric vehicle (EV) charging and vehicle to grid technology. Supported by Innovate UK EDGE, it aims to ensure the effective use of renewable energy sources through its demand management and energy storage systems.
“What we are trying to do is to ensure that the electricity grid remains reliable with the mass adoption of EVs,” says Andrew Larkins, CEO at Sygensys. “EVs are going to need a lot of energy to charge and are a potential threat to electricity grid reliability as a result. Having smart systems around them should enhance reliability.”
