On our path towards climate neutrality, clean electrification of end-use sectors and, in particular, of the transport and building sectors will play a crucial role. This inevitably brings important changes to the way the electricity system functions as it will need to become more flexible to support the increase of variable renewable energy in a reliable and cost-effective way.
There is where electric vehicles can play a significant role. If done smartly, charging can turn electric vehicles into Decentralised Energy Resources providing flexibility to the system and supporting consumers’ active participation in the clean energy transition.
