Interoperability of Public Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

In their new white paper,  the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) covers four core challenges related to public charging infrastructure and how they impact customers, site hosts, and electric companies respectively. For the purpose of this paper, interoperability is defined as the process of harmonizing of standards, technology, and practices for EV charging in a way that provides transparency for customers and encourages ease of use.

Charging Smart: How EVs Can Integrate with the Grid

The report finds that utilities could reduce the costs of integrating variable resources like wind and solar and spread the costs of maintaining the grid more broadly, reducing electricity rates for non-EV owners. It also argues that EV users could provide utilities with consistent, predictable energy demand and grid operators with abundant and precise data on local conditions.
