Linking mobile and stationary energy system: potential for plug-in hybrid vehicles

Increasing demands for energy efficiency in transportation, as well as recent advances in electric conversion, control, and storage have facilitated the electrification of the automobile and increased the attractiveness of grid electricity for transportation energy. The viability of using electric vehicles for personal transportation, with a focus on plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs), is investigated. Important factors determining the viability are identified and various implications of possible linking of the stationary and mobile system are assessed. It is found that the design of PHEVs has to be individually adopted to increase their competitiveness. Moreover, synergies can be reached in the integration of PHEV with the electric system, even though participation in regulatory markets is unlikely to push the introduction of PHEV.
