NREL Finds Future EV Charging Demand Will Require Coordination Between Utilities & Car Owners

A study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory finds the existing grid can cope with the needs of electric cars until they represent 25% of all cars on the road. But clusters of EVs in one neighborhood may overload existing transformers or shorten their useful life. Coordinated charging using smart grid technology will be necessary in the future for grid resiliency,
