E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium
- New for 2017 -

The symposium will be held 23 October 2017, preceding the Solar & Wind Integration Workshop, 24-27 October 2017.

To implement the ambitious goal outlined in the Paris Agreement to keep the increase in global average temperature below 2 °C, significant changes in the transport sector are required: Greenhouse emissions in the transport sector need to decrease substantially, which calls for an increase in the share of E-Mobility solutions in the transportation sector. It is equally important to ensure that these vehicles are being charged with energy from renewable energy sources. Otherwise, depending on the source of electricity used to recharge the batteries, emissions are only shifted to the location of the generation plants. The electricity used to recharge the batteries must be generated from renewable or clean sources such as wind, solar, or hydroelectric energy for Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) to have almost none or zero well-to-wheel emissions.

The purpose of the E-Mobility Power System Integration Symposium is to discuss the challenges that arise with increased power demand due to electric vehicle charging, and how they can be met by coordinating with renewable power production in the electrical system (hence the combination with the Solar & Wind Integration Workshop). The selection of topics also highlights the need for integrating the required electric vehicle charging infrastructure with the expansion of the distribution and transmission system.

The Symposium offers a prime opportunity to discuss the significant future impact of E-Mobility on power system design and operation. It aims to bring together experts on electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, power system operators, and stakeholders of the renewable energy industry as well as power system regulators and universities.
