In the first in a series of global reports on the benefits of smart electric vehicle charging, RAP, the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and Evolved Energy Research (EER) analyzed the value of charging flexibility to the broader decarbonized energy system in the state of Colorado. In an interactive webinar, panelists Camille Kadoch of RAP and Amy Wagner of EER presented the report’s findings. Hussein Basma of ICCT, a co-author of the report, moderated the session, and Jamil Farbes of EER joined to answer questions about the modeling and analysis. The panelists discussed how enhanced demand flexibility from vehicle charging can unlock a significant amount of system value, flattening peaks and reducing the need for grid upgrades, and how the value of this flexibility could help states equip residential customers with Level 2 chargers, further enabling the adoption of EVs.
