As the number of electric vehicles on European roads grows, policymakers can unlock extensive value for all consumers, the grid and the environment — provided we integrate EVs strategically into the power system. The time is right for new cross-sectoral policies for e-mobility to accelerate the transition to cleaner transport and energy at least cost.

In a webinar held on 3 July 2019, Dr. Julia Hildermeier and Christos Kolokathis shared best practices based on RAP’s report Start with Smart: Promising practices for integrating electric vehicles into the grid. They highlighted the substantial benefits that can be derived from integrating EVs into the grid, three key strategies for harnessing opportunities from EV integration and policy recommendations for implementing these strategies.
