Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the joint report summarizing the findings from an Electric Vehicle (EV) Grid Reliability Working Group assembled by the California Mobility Center (CMC).  The report offers a series of immediate recommendations to the EV and the electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) manufacturing industry that best ensure their products are grid friendly.

NERC, WECC, and the CMC see the need to intensify cross-sector collaboration to address EV charging station performance.  The similarity to Distributed Energy Resource aggregations suggests IEEE and even NERC standards may be forthcoming over the longer term.
