A Regulatory Roadmap for Vehicle-Grid Integration

What VGI is And How Regulators Can Support It 

Whether electric vehicles (EVs) are your favorite topic or make your head spin, they are here and projected to increase in numbers. EVs could become a grid asset with thoughtful planning by utilities and guidance from regulators. Without planning and measures to mitigate impact, they could increase peak load by 10-20 GW leading to the need for system upgrades and higher costs for customers. Regulators have an opportunity to facilitate vehicle-grid integration (VGI) and minimize the risks associated with it. How? Download this report for a regulatory roadmap to guide VGI development and deployment in your state.

What is Vehicle-Grid Integration?
Vehicle-grid integration (VGI) includes any action taken via a grid-connected EV, whether directly through resource dispatching or indirectly through rate design, to alter the time, magnitude, or location at which grid-connected EVs charge or discharge. The objective is to do so in a manner that optimizes EV charging and provides value to the customer and the grid

What’s inside:

  • Why VGI is beneficial for the future energy system
  • Why there has been little deployment of VGI so far
  • Why regulators are key to deploying VGI
  • A roadmap to help facilitate the development of regulations and policies to support VGI.
