Scientists at the University of Notre Dame are exploring how the wider use of electric cars will impact on US’ power grid. With their work funded by the National Science Foundation’s Cyber-Physical Systems Program, the researchers intends to develop mathematical algorithms to help guide the integration of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) into the nation’s power grid. The researchers at the Indiana-based university say that electric cars represent an eventual win-win for consumers, transport and electric companies as well as the environment; but that doesn’t mean there aren’t challenges ahead to balance electricity demand and supply.
