How will the electric distribution grid manage the adoption of electric vehicles? This presentation will review how the electric distribution grid will manage the growing adoption of EVs. It will discuss the early concerns by electric utilities and automotive manufactures and how they have adapted since the early plug-in electric vehicles arrived over 10 years ago and what the challenges are today and in the near future. It is not only the large rollout of light duty EVs that are being introduced but also the great challenge of how electric utilities will manage the multi-MW charging by EV fleet vehicle owners. There will also be a discussion on how various standards bodies are helping to ensure that EVs can become a friendly grid load and a resource asset.
