EV Charge Automation Study Shows Carbon Reduction up to 43% is Possible

Engaging customers in how they think about charging their EV's will be critical for utilities looking to meet aggressive carbon reduction goals. This study used over 100,000 sessions of in-field electric vehicle (EV) charging data and the analysis of location- and time-based fuel mix of the power grid to characterize the carbon intensity of common
EV charging patterns. Combining these data sets, the study showed that optimizing EV charging for carbon intensity would yield 8-14% reductions in related carbon on average across 44 states, and an average reduction of 43% in California due to the higher proportion of renewable energy.
