Association Webinars: Electric Vehicles Economics: Managing the adaptation of energy and mobility systems



Presentation of “ SAE J3068: a new standard for high power AC and DC charging, power management, and grid services.” By Rodney McGee and Willett Kempton , U Delaware.

Remi’s abstract of the paper “Integration of electric vehicles into transmission grids: a case study on the economic impacts and generation-load adequacy in Europe in 2040”

Electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to grow massively in the coming years, and grid integration of many of them could severely challenge the capacities of electricity-system infrastructure. Here we report a methodology designed to study the technical and economic impacts on power systems of mass EV charging as a function to several EV-owner connection behavior profiles (systematic, when necessary, when convenient) and the range of recharge modes available (uncontrolled, time-of-use tariff, smart unidirectional charging, and vehicle-to-grid). This framework is applied to an hourly-resolution case study at on high penetration of electric vehicles and renewable energy sources in Europe at the 2040 time-horizon, in line with the ‘National Trends Scenario’ grid mix under the pan-EU ENTSO-E Ten-Year Network Development Plan. Results show that the European electricity system can accommodate large EV growth and that widespread adoption of smart charging in France can significantly reduce operational electricity-system costs by up to 1.1 G€ and reduce carbon emissions by up to 3.2 MtCO2 per year. We also compare multiple EV smart charging modes and identify which parameters have the largest impact on EV flexibility, including gas prices, smart charging adoption, weekly flexibility, and mid-day charging

Marc-Olivier’s abstract of the paper: “Rationalizing the charging infrastructure deployment: a user-centric approach”

The environmental objectives set by the various international summits call for greening the transportation sector, which is responsible for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions. The current trend is a transition from the current fleet of vehicles to a fleet of electric vehicles. To allow this transition, it is necessary to ensure the acceptance of the electric vehicle among its users. This acceptance requires the deployment of a charging infrastructure adapted to user needs. In this study, we propose a multi-criterion charging infrastructure deployment model, not only geographically but also temporally, to accompany this transition. The model is oriented to meet the needs of users if charging demand will follow if a suitable infrastructure is proposed.

Wale Arowolo’s abstract of the paper: “the economics of electric mobility in developing countries: A framework for analysis”

While several developed countries (especially in the West) are making steady progress in decarbonizing their transport sector with electric mobility. It is important to focus attention on developing countries since the climate change challenge is global. This paper provides knowledge on the economics of electric mobility in developing countries with a focus on the key benefits and costs. It also develops a framework for analysis of the integration of electric mobility and electric utilities with a goal to determining the developing countries ripe for electric mobility investment.

Yannick Perez is Professor in Economics of Energy and Mobility at CentraleSupélec – University Paris-Saclay. He is also the Holder of the Armand Peugeot research chair on Electromobility with ESSEC Business School, CentraleSupélec and Stellantis. He is also part-time professor at the Florence School of Regulation, European University Institute, Italy. He took his PhD in economics at La Sorbonne in France. Since the last 10 years he published with his team more than 30 academic papers about Electromobilty issues.


Willett Kempton is Research Director, Center for Carbon-free Power Integration; Professor, College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment; and Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering – University of Delaware. Kempton leads several research teams working on electric vehicles, offshore wind power, and integration of variable generation into the electric power system. Dr. Kempton invented the technology for grid-integrated vehicles (GIV) with vehicle-to-grid power (V2G). This technology, now being commercialized, provides low-cost storage for the electric power grid, making it able to absorb more renewable energy. Many of these projects are conducted jointly with industrial partners.

Kempton has held research or teaching positions at Princeton University, Michigan State University, and the University of California campuses at Berkeley and Irvine, prior to joining the faculty at the University of Delaware in 1992. During Fall 2011 he was Otto Mønsted Gœst Professor, Center for Electric Power and Energy, Department of Electrical Engineering (DTU-Elektro), Danish Technical University.

Rodney McGee leads an engineering group at the University of Delaware to develop technology andstandards for vehicle-based distributed energy resources and, more broadly, transportation electrification. He is the chairman of the SAE International’s Task Force for conductive charging inside the Truck and Bus Council. He is a member of the other standards organizations such as the International Electrotechnical Commission and the International Organization for Standardization representing the United States. He has engineered solutions for real-world distributed storage demonstration projects in North America, Europe, and Asia. He regularly collaborates with Automobile manufacturers and government agencies on new technology and first-of-their-kind implementations.

Rémi Lauvergne (French TSO / CentraleSupélec) is PhD Student in Economics of Energy at CentraleSupélec – Université Paris-Saclay and a doctoral researcher at the French TSO- R&D department (Paris, France). He completed his electrical engineering course at CentraleSupélec in 2018. His research focuses on forecasting the impact of vehicle-grid integration with the Vehicle-to-grid concept in a context of energy transition for Transmission System Operators.

Marc Olivier Metais (VEDECOM) is a PhD Student in industrial Engineering and Economics at CentraleSupelec (Université Paris-Saclay) and a doctoral researcher at the French Institute for Energy Transition VEDECOM CentraleSupélec. He holds an engineering degree in Energy from CentraleSupelec, and a MSc in Network Economics from Paris-Dauphine University. His research focuses on transportation system modelisation and charging infrastructure deployment.

Wale Arowolo (CentraleSupélec) has multidisciplinary background in Engineering, Economics and Policy Analysis and 12 years of industry and applied research professional experience. He holds a PhD in Economics from Paris Saclay University, France. He also holds master’s degree in the Electric Power Industry (Pontifical Comillas University, Madrid, Spain); M.Sc. in Engineering and Policy Analysis (Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands) and a B.Sc. in Engineering Physics from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.His multidisciplinary areas of expertise are in Energy and Environmental Economics (market design and reform, institutional design, and regulation); in Engineering (project management and techno-economic optimization) and in Public Policy Analysis (energy and sustainable transportation policy). He contributes to knowledge with applied research to inform public policy choices and has published papers in international journals. He is currently a post-doctoral researcher in energy and (sustainable) transport economics at CentraleSupelec (Paris Saclay University), France.
