The impact of the mass-adoption of electric cars on the Australian electricity grid.
Grant number: LP100200094 | Funding period: 2010 - 2016
This project represents the first technical study in Australia into the impact on the electric utility system of the mass adoption of electric vehicles. At present, road transport accounts for 12 per cent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Australia. The mass adoption of electric vehicles could reduce GHG in transport by up to 24 per cent when charged from the current grid or by 100 per cent if using renewable power. As well as receiving environmental advantages, Australia will benefit from this project through: (1) advancements in the management of the electricity distribution system by the development of a smart grid; (2) the development of principles for the placement of charging statio..View full description
