California is progressing toward the deployment of 5 million Zero-Emission Vehicles by 2030, a critical measure necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. In addition, California has set targets to serve the state with 100% clean energy and achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. The California Energy Commission is responsible for assessing the demand for electric vehicle charging infrastructure to support these goals, and quantified that 250,000 chargers at multi-unit dwellings, workplaces, and destinations are needed to serve near-term targets for light-duty electric vehicle deployments in 2025. Efficiently planning for and integrating the charging and discharging of passenger cars -- and all types of electric transportation including in emergent freight and goods movement applications - into the operations of the grid is critical for the success of California’s simultaneous electric power and transportation network decarbonization efforts. This seminar will describe the charging infrastructure technology research, modeling, policy, and incentive designs that the Energy Commission is leading in collaboration with other state agencies to transform automotive and electrical manufacturer, utility, and local initiatives toward seamless vehicle-grid integration.
