Electric vehicles as power and energy provider for the European electricity system - an electricity systems modelling study
Paper in proceedings, 2019

This study analysis the potential for electric vehicles (EVs) to contribute with power and energy to the electricity system by means of demand response, storage of electricity and contribution to the power reserve. The work applies real-time measurements of driving patterns and a cost-minimisation model of the electricity system assuming zero CO2 emission and run for selected European regions. The results shows that EVs can (i) substantially reduce investments in peak power capacity, (ii) replace investments in other both short-term and long-term storage technologies (e.g., stationary batteries and hydrogen storage), and (iii)  participate in the power reserve with large additional power capacity.
