Meeting #46: Electric Vehicles

June 6, 2017

Electric vehicles (EVs) are here, and they could have a profound impact on the future of the power sector. EVs are more than just a new “load” that the system must serve.

MADRI’s 46th meeting will focus – for the first time – on EVs as a new kind of distributed resource. We’ll explore the status quo and future of EV deployment, the impacts of EVs on the grid and integration, regulatory issues relating to ownership of public charging infrastructure, and how rate design and prices shape these issues.
