The coming intersection between a growing electrified vehicle fleet and desired growth in renewable electricity generation presents an opportunity for synergistic value. Some types of renewable electricity generation are variable and intermittent, and rarely coincident with utility load pattern. Vehicles are typically parked 90% of the time, and the batteries are a significant capital investment. In this paper we discuss the intersection of these two growth areas, the technology needed for integration, and several potential scenarios highlighting the limitations and opportunities for renewable energy resources to fuel electrified vehicles of the future.
