Virtual Lecture: Vehicle-to-grid and Socio-Technical Transitions Beyond Electric Mobility

Dr. Sovacool will define and chart the barriers and future of an emerging low-carbon source of mobility that could dramatically reduce emissions, create revenue, and accelerate the adoption of battery electric cars: vehicle-to-grid technology. This technology connects the electric power grid and the transportation system in ways that will enable EVs to store renewable energy and offer valuable services to transmission operators. To understand the complex features of this emergent technology, the presentation explores the current status and prospect of vehicle-to grid and then individually details the sociotechnical barriers that may impede its deployment, and the policies that could promote its adoption.
