Peak Power Presentation Details 

Presentation Title: Electric Vehicles, as Distributed Energy Sources, for a Cleaner Grid and Highways

What do converging trends in energy markets and technology mean for businesses and individuals? With more activity trending toward the “grid edge”, individuals and companies become prosumers, more in control of when and how they use energy.

Further, by 2030, EVs could account for 10-30 GW of demand in Ontario, 1.5 to 2.5 times our current peak. Whether this new load is seen as a strain on the grid or as a grid resource will depend on accurate electricity price signals to EV drivers. Come and join us to hear about how electric vehicles can be leveraged as a grid resource to enhance the value proposition of electric vehicle ownership and accelerate adoption.
