UC Irvine study finds intelligent PEV charging minimizes renewables’ energy storage need https://t.co/hbVyRWRtHU

UC Irvine study concludes intelligent PEV charging can minimize scale of stationary energy storage needed to meet renewable targets 24 October 2016 A new study by a team at the University of California Irvine highlights the importance of intelligent plug-in vehicle (PEV) charging for minimizing the scale of infrastructure required to meet renewable utilization targets. In the study, published in the Journal of Power Sources , the UC Irvine team examined how the intelligence of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) integration impacted the required capacity of energy storage systems to meet renewable utilization targets for a large-scale energy system, using California as an example for meeting a 50% and 80% renewable portfolio standard (RPS) in 2030 and 2050. They found that for an 80% RPS in 2050, immediate charging of PEVs requires the installation of an aggregate energy storag...
