Using Renewables for Electric Vehicle Demand: A Review of Utility Program Designs and Implementation Strategies

This paper explores the range of approaches and emerging program designs currently used in the United States to match EV loads and renewable energy, with an emphasis on methods that more closely link the timing and location of the EV demand with renewable energy supply.

Traditional methods of renewable energy procurement can be used to match electric vehicle (EV) demand with renewables annually; however, approaches that incorporate the timing of charging have the potential to enable demand to match renewable energy supplies more closely and offer greater grid benefits.
