A recent report from RMI’s Electricity Innovation Lab (eLab) describes how the rise of electric vehicles (EVs) could happen much faster than most expect, driven by a host of incentives, targets, and trends. The rapid growth of EVs is driving innovation in numerous areas and has far-reaching implications. For one, it is critically important for utilities and regulators to structure electricity tariffs and incentives appropriately in order to accommodate those vehicles so that they provide a long list of benefits to the grid—and not a long list of headaches and cost increases. The new eLab report, EVs as Distributed Energy Resources, which was developed in conjunction with the Regulatory Assistance Project and San Diego Gas and Electric, identifies some of the best practices that utilities and regulators should follow.
