Electric cars likely to new ‘smart grid’

WASHINGTON industries grew up around cars, ranging from the filling stations to fast-food along highway exits. the rise of electric cars will transform more just the automobile.

The moment you put a on a car, you ve got these two titan coming together and supporting a said Ed Kjaer, the director of transportation for Southern California a giant utility.

The alliance utilities and carmakers will to numerous changes, he predicts, a faster build of the so-called grid. This involves the use of technology by utilities to allow real-time measures of their use.

For power providers, the smart allows them to provide that encourages conservation and utilizes off-peak hours when there s less on electricity as factories and office ramp down.

In a true grid, digital communications a utility and the consumer s home stagger the charge coming to an car depending on the overall demand for Big off-peak energy users see lower bills.

This is one behind General Electric s announcement that it ll purchase electric cars by 2015, a almost as large as its current of 30,000 conventional gasoline-powered GE anticipates savings from economy and overnight charging.

savings help explain why Beal, the vice president of vehicles for Federal Express, said that 30 percent of his s fleet could be electric if with a 100-mile range commonplace.

Much of the early shift to vehicles has come from that make deliveries, services or operate at airports.

tend to focus on the light-duty segment. and they don t understand the piece, said Genevieve the vice president of the Electric Transportation Association, an advocacy for electric cars. A small in efficiency translates into oil savings.

Carmakers and manufacturers of chargers already have on a common plug that ll across the wide range of providers. Utilities, carmakers and providers now are working out a standard protocol for electric cars to with power grids. would be key in advancing a smart

What ll become of the corner or Shell station?

The first of car-charging stations is likely to the owners of buildings, and national chains that install operations for some small or marketing gain. Once a mass is reached in production and of electric cars, advocates the market could build out

At some point, you will these well-capitalized people come in and who say, We want to be the of charging infrastructure. And they buy electricity in bulk from the and they will pony up the to actually plant infrastructure on the sign up customers, said Reddy, the CEO of SemaConnect, a company in Md. that s making electric car

Reddy calls these charging infrastructure network and expects them to provide cards similar to building ID or transit-system electronic-fare cards. motorists pull into stations, they ll swipe the to pay, much like credit cards.

Electricity has that is already ubiquitous, said. Power lines and distribution are already in place, the transition far cheaper than for technologies.

It is orders of magnitude cheaper say, installing hydrogen or an ethanol infrastructure, he said.

cars aren t expected to the utilities that are developing the grid.

There is so much capacity that there are not or midterm challenges. Where we there is going to be some and it will vary across the is really the last 50 feet, Kjaer of Southern Cal Edison, to the connections from homes to the transformer.

Sherif Marakby, the of electric-vehicle programs for Ford Co. shares that view.

How electric vehicles can you charge on the transformer in a subdivision? It seems it s pretty doable to a large as long as the trend is to charge at the low overnight, he said.
