The Networked EV: The Convergence of Smart Grids and Electric Vehicles

The Networked EV: The Convergence of Smart Grids and Electric Vehicles
This report examines in detail the technology and planning considerations that will enable a successful smart grid-EV convergence. The report analyzes hot button issues such as transformer build-out and advanced metering (AMI) and charging infrastructure, but also expands the conversation beyond these known challenges to highlight emerging smart grid solutions for the EV market. These solutions include communications standards and protocols that act as the "digital handshake" between the grid and the EV, as well as distribution automation (DA) technologies that will enable a more self-aware grid capable of autonomously self-correcting based EV consumption patterns and moment-to-moment grid conditions.

    Electric vehicles operate with production of big zero green house gases. Charging these electric vehicles must come from hydrogen fuel cell. That is the big ZERO green house gas production rate.
