Electric Vehicles for Public Transportation in Smart Grids


Presented by: Jean-Michel Clairand, Universidad de las Américas – Ecuador

The market for electric vehicles (EVs) has grown with each year, and EVs are considered to be a proper solution for the mitigation of urban pollution. However, it is well known that a massive introduction of EVs will lead to grid issues, so significant research has been performed in this area. However, a few research has been devoted to EVs for public transportation, such as taxis and buses. This webinar will focus on new trends, technologies, and challenges for integrating properly electric taxis and buses in power systems.
