International Electric vehicles could save billions on energy storage

 10:23 am     

Using electric vehicles (EVs) as mobile power storage could eliminate the need to build costly stationary grid storage for energy from renewable sources, a study has found. Using California as a case study, researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in the US looked at the issue of large-scale deployment of renewables across the energy grid. They analysed the associated problems of variability (daytime overproduction, or evening surge…
