DOE releases report from 6 projects evaluating EV charging impacts on grid and customer charging behaviors

Green Car Congress

The work was done under the DOE’s Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability’s (OE) Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG program). The report also examines when consumers want to recharge vehicles, and to what extent pricing and incentives can encourage consumers to charge during off-peak periods. Major findings were grouped in three categories: charging behavior; grid impacts; and technology issues. Grid impacts.
