Association Webinars: System-Level Electric Vehicle-Grid Integration



  

 

Transportation is already the largest source of CO2 emissions in the U.S. and mobility needs for passenger and freight are growing rapidly. However, after over a century of petroleum dominance, new disruptive technologies and business models offer a pathway to decarbonize the sector. Transportation is at a turning point. On the horizon lies a future where affordable and abundant renewable electricity can be used to power cost-competitive battery electric vehicles (EVs) and produce energy-dense low-carbon fuels enabling to fully decarbonize transportation systems across all modes. And the integration of EVs into power systems presents unique opportunities for synergistic improvement of the efficiency and economics of mobility and the power grid. At NREL, we're laying the scientific groundwork to get there. Among many other things, our research is finding ways for EVs to support grid planning and operations across several timescales and to fully exploit the synergies between EVs and renewables to provide transformative sustainable solutions for the integrated energy systems of the future.

Speaker:

Dr. Matteo Muratori leads a team of engineers and analysts at NREL to explore system-level sustainable solutions for the transformation of the transportation sector, including technology options and policy solutions to support the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles and related infrastructure and the synergies between transportation and the power grid. A native of Italy, Matteo holds B.S. and M.S. summa cum laude degrees in energy engineering from Politecnico di Milano and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering, along with a minor degree in statistics, from The Ohio State University. He is a Member of the Alternative Transportation Fuels and Technologies committee of the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies of Science and Engineering, and serves on the editorial board of Transportation Research part D.
