Essentials of Electric Grid: Business
About this Course
Electric vehicles (EVs) are not just the way of the future; they are biggest growth opportunity for our electric utilities in nearly a century. This module will explore issues at the intersection of the rapidly changing electricity and transportation sectors, with a particular focus on how EVs fit into the utility business model and can support a smarter, cleaner, more efficient “grid-of-the-future.” The course will include background on the state of the EV market and technology, as well as state and federal policy drivers for transportation electrification, including efficiency standards, the zero-emission vehicle mandate, and the EV tax credit. We will engage in interactive discussion of policy options and case studies.
