– management, power reserve, collaboration, options, customer needs …
Speaker: Sunil Chhaya, PhD, Grid/Vehicle Connectivity, EPRI (Electric Power Research Institute); Richard Scholer, Vehicle to Grid Interface, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles
Time: 10:00 AM (PST)
Cost: none
Place: on the Web
RSVP: from website

Can a power grid manage the load when 250 million electric vehicles (EVs) are all plugged in at the end of rush hour?  Can the batteries of plugged-in electric vehicles act as a power reserve to help utilities smooth generating load?
The spread of plug-in vehicles (both all-electric and hybrid) is forcing a convergence of the automotive and electric power industries.  Meeting these challenges will require â??thinking across the plug,â? with vehicles talking to the grid and collaboration between utility and vehicle engineers.  Leading technologists from the automotive industry and the electric utilities will talk about how their sectors are collaborating to design the electric vehicle/smart grid network of the future.
Attendees will learn:
– Options in powering and charging EVs.
– The present state of the plug-in EV charging ecosystem.
– Expanding the plug-in electric vehicleâ??s role as a grid services provider.
– Strategies for matching EV features with customer needs.
– Where to go for information on, and to participate in, developing standards for electric-vehicle/smart grid integration.
