Plug-in Electric Vehicle Commercial Charging Station Usage Pattern Assessment

< Previous Page

DRRC is evaluating the potential for electric vehicle charging at commercial locations in northern California to be utilized in PG&E's demand response programs. The research is focused on understanding the load shape, its location in the power system, and the viability to use its capacity as a demand response resource under current programs. The LBNL-developed Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Simulator is being used to analyze data from a majority of in-use charging stations located in the PG&E service area.
