Planning rules for linking electric vehicles (EV) to distributed energy resources] (PlangGridEV)

Type: International Project

Duration: from 2013 Jun 01 to 2016 Feb 06

Financed by: European Commission

Prime Contractor: RWE DEUTSCHLAND AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT (Company) -Germany

The anticipated mass roll-out of electric vehicles (EVs) in Europe and the continuously increasing number of distributed energy resources (DER) are posing major challenges to Europe’s Distribution System Operators (DSOs) with regard to ensuring a secure and reliable energy supply and network operation. Despite ongoing research and demonstration activities in this field, particularly the development of new and the revision of existing planning rules and operational principles of DSOs still require extensive R&D efforts. The overall objective of PlanGridEV is therefore to develop new network planning tools and methods for European DSOs for an optimized large-scale roll-out of electromobility in Europe whilst at the same time maximizing the potential of DER integration.
