Grid-Connected Electric Vehicles (EVs)

From the perspective of the power system, EVs are batteries on wheels. They add an additional source of distributed demand, requiring sufficient electricity generation and grid infrastructure to meet this. However they are also discussed as a source of distributed supply too, with so-called “vehicle-to-grid” (V2G) models aiming to use their batteries as sources of electricity discharge when and where this will add value.

This time-efficient 1-day briefing looks at EVs not from the transport perspective, but from the perspective of those required to “fuel” them: those involved in the supply and distribution of electricity. It is designed to provide a perfect introduction to the question: what are the impacts on electricity systems when EV markets start to grow to significant size? What size is ‘significant’ and what risks and innovation opportunities start to arise?

Benefits of Attending

Understand the key variables determining the impact of EVs on electricity systems: how much more electricity will be required?

Learn why EVs cannot become mass-market without “smart” charging management

Quantify the carbon-emission impacts of substituting fossil-fuelled vehicles for EVs

Understand the challenges that mass-market EVs will create for grid distribution operators

Review examples and projects in charging infrastructure and charging control from around the world

Be better able to converse with EV and grid project partners, suppliers or investors

Begin to identify key power system business opportunities which arise from the growth of EVs

Training Methodology

The agenda will combine presented materials with plenty of opportunity for Q&A, interactive discussions, and the use of quantitative models to illustrate key learning points. Current market examples and data are utilised wherever relevant.
