Explore new research on how to offset the increased grid stress caused by electric vehicles' growing popularity!

Following the results of DEED-funded research, Milad Soleimani, Gary Miller, and the Bryan Texas Utilities team propose a coordination and management approach, where profits from employing BESS and PV systems are maximized while stress on assets is minimized. Different scenarios' use cases are developed and data synthesized to study the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
