I recently presented some of the results from Charge The North and wanted to share them here as well.
Program Overview & Data Collected:
10 Electric Utilities
1,000 electric vehicles
EVSE and vehicle agnostic
4,721 MWh charging energy
727,000 charge events
12.4 million miles of driving data
Summary of Conclusions:
EV charging load currently poses a risk to the distribution grid.
LR-BEVs represent a greater portion of EV market share today, than when initial recruitment was conducted.
Increasing occurrence of EV clustering will impact distribution grids at greater rates.
Beneficial opportunities to shift EV charging load exist for transmission and generation.
Territory factors (temperature, seasonality, TOU) can increase the impact impact.
Included in this post is the summary report. Please feel to reach out for the full report.
