Electric Vehicles and Vehicle to Grid Technology


With the advent of new technology and advancing capabilities of electric vehicles, it is vital for utilities to understand how EVs effect the power grid and how utilities can take advantage of this new technology. In order for utilities to benefit from the increased popularity of EVs, the industry must first understand the technology, rate structures, and regulations.

In the webinar, attendees will gain valuable knowledge regarding EV technology, charging stations, demand-side management, rate designs, and the regulatory/ technical barriers. This webinar will also discuss the concept of Vehicle to Grid and what this means for the industry, the utilities, and OEM.

Learning Outcomes

  • Examine the impacts of EVs on the grid
  • Review EV technology
  • Discuss rate designs and rate structures
  • Identify charging stations components
  • Discuss the concept of Vehicle to Grid
