Electric vehicles (EVs) in Norway and the potential for demand response
Challenge and objective
- Capacity problems in the grid due to increased peak load. Evaluate electric vehicles as a flexibility source. '
- Analyses of 1-minutes meter data of charging profiles for different EVs and survey among Norwegian owners of EVs.
- 59% of households (single-family home) charge their EV at home daily.
- 49,5% of the users charge their EV at home from a normal socket (10 A).
- 90% are willing to postpone the time of charging from day/afternoon to night (hours 21-05) if this shift has no negative consequences for the user.
Impact for distribution system innovation
- EVs are good candidates for demand response, if households are given the right incentives.
