Influx of electric vehicles accelerates need for grid planning

TECHXPLORE | Electric vehicles are coming—en masse. How can local utilities, grid planners and cities prepare? That's the key question addressed with a new study led by researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.


"While we don't know exactly when the tipping point will happen, fleets of fast-charging vehicles are going to change how cities and utilities manage their electricity infrastructure" said Michael Kintner-Meyer, an electrical systems engineer in PNNL's Electricity Infrastructure group and the study's lead author.
