How to Use EV-flexibility to Ensure System Reliability

Tuesday, July 20, 2021
04:30 pm - 06:00 pm
ICM München
Room 13 B

Electric cars boomed in 2020, with several European countries announcing plans to ban the sale of new ICE-powered vehicles. EU estimates suggest the number of EVs across the continent could reach 190m by 2050. This will require suitable load management strategies but also offers the potential to cut costs and CO2 emissions arising from power generation, such as through bidirectional V2G connections. In this session, speakers will examine the state of affairs in several European countries, discuss a series of practical cases, and analyze the scale of the challenges ahead for the energy sector.
