This Vehicle-to-City (V2C) Operational Pilot, Flexpower, was deployed in two phases in Amsterdam from the beginning of March 2017 up to the end of May 2020 . The first phase, defined as Flexpower 1, ran from March 2017 until end August 2018. The second phase, Flexpower 2, encompasses May 2019 – May 2020. The pilot is based on the architecture of the low voltage distribution system in Amsterdam, which is managed by Liander. Improving the utilisation rate of the electrical network is one of the goals of this project. The Flexpower pilot is not about the installation of new equipment but about using a smarter way to use it to push the limits of the system. The Flexpower pilot was used to test, improve and scale a smart charging solution which reduces the power available for charging EVs when the stress on the electricity network is already high and then allow faster charging when the available capacity is sufficient. For this purpose, capacity profiles were created.
