Grid Integrated Vehicles

This project examines the different modes of grid-integrated vehicles (G2V, V2B, and V2G) and their impact on resilience of the electric grid. Through the course of the project, we have engaged with numerous stakeholders to assess the viability of different business models for enhancing the role of EVs in the Southeast. With the growth of distributed energy resources, new players are transforming traditional energy business models. The evolving market structure is combining consumers with third-party producers and aggregators in a variety of novel ways. We hope to build partnerships that will bring the Southeast closer to the goal of clean and grid-supportive, electrified transportation.
