    Electric vehicles could lift UK peak power demand by 5-8 GW by 2030-National Grid

    The growing use of electric vehicles could increase peak electricity demand in Britain by between 5 and 8 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, National Grid (LSE: NG.L - news) said on Thursday. Although some conventional cars will remain on the road, numbers of electric vehicles (including cars, motorbikes, vans and buses) could swell to 11 million by 2030 and 36 million by 2040, according to National Grid's annual Future Energy Scenarios report. As a result, electricity demand will increase, driven initially by the charging of electric vehicles and later as the pace picks up to decarbonise the heating sector.

    Britain to hold two power capacity auctions early next year

    The British government plans to hold two electricity capacity auctions will be held early next year to secure back-up power, it said on Monday. The government will hold an auction in Feb. 2019 for 46.3 gigawatts (GW) of back-up power to be delivered in 2022/2023 and one in Jan. 2019 for 4.6 GW to be delivered in 2019/2020, energy minister Claire Perry said in a letter to National Grid (LSE: NG.L - news) .
