Funded by Transport-Technology Research Innovation Grants (T-TRIG) 2019, this project is to develop a P2P energy trading app, allowing electric vehicles (EVs) which have surplus battery energy to trade with nearby EVs in public car parks.

For EV drivers who are also owners of household-generators, they mostly charge their vehicles at home with minimum to no costs. Also, these households sell their excess generation back to the power grid at a set price (i.e. feed-in tariff). For EV drivers who do not have household-generators, vehicles are charged at home premises or car parks at a much higher rate than the feed-in price. If these two groups of EVs are able to exchange energy at a mid-market electricity price, both groups will gain economic benefits.
