Vehicle-Grid Integration

This brief lays out the challenges and opportunities of vehicle-grid integration (VGI). Electric vehicles (EVs) can help increase the utilization of existing electrical grid assets and put downward pressure on electricity rates by decreasing the average cost of delivering electricity. Many aspects of VGI, including time-of-use (TOU) rates and demand response programs have similar characteristics to other grid management programs.

Assessing the Business Case for Hosting Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in New York State

This white paper evaluates the business case of hosting a Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging station in New York. The analysis relied on charging use data provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) along with real-world data on equipment use, costs, revenue, and assumptions derived from industry reports and original research. The report explored scenarios that vary charging use and revenue sources to better understand the key factors that drive profitability from hosting these stations.
