ERG PhD Student Szinai and Alumnus Gopal Link Grid Costs to Electric Vehicle Charge Management

ERG PhD student Julia Szinai, ERG Alumnus Anand Gopal, and two other co-authors Colin Sheppard and Nikit Abhyankar from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab have recently published a collaborative research paper on Energy Policy. Titled “Reduced grid operating costs and renewable energy curtailment with electric vehicle charge management”, the paper discusses the grid value and renewable integration benefits of electric vehicle charge management in California.

Their analysis focuses “on the state of California in 2025, and improves on prior work by linking high-resolution mobility and grid dispatch models to quantify the value of managed charging under a 50% RE grid and PEV adoption scenarios up to California’s 5 million vehicle target.”
