Potential Impacts of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles on Regional Power Generation


Author Info

  • Hadley, Stanton W.
  • Tsvetkova, Alexandra A.
Registered author(s):


    Simulations predict that the introduction of PHEVs could impact demand peaks, reduce reserve margins, and increase prices. The type of power generation used to recharge the PHEVs and associated emissions will depend upon the region and the timing of the recharge.
