Electric vehicles and the grid

Electric vehicles and the grid

Even without the rapid growth of EVs, our current power systems are in the midst of a disruptive transition towards cleaner, diversified and more flexible structures. If a transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs) is to be achieved, what will be the impact on these systems? What are the barriers to scale and which solutions (and hence market opportunities) will be essential?

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the multi-sector issues that must be understood and integrated, plus the competitive battles ahead, including: technology status and trends, management of electricity demand & supply, charging network players and competitors, and consumer behaviour influences.

Course sessions

  1. The EV market and its bulk impact on electricity systems
  2. Charging challenges, smart charging and EVs as grid assets
  3. Value chain convergence and technology disruption

Benefits of attending

  • Quantify the variables which will determine the impact of EVs on electricity supply
  • Identify the key barriers to widespread EV integration and growth, from a power system perspective
  • Assess where and how EVs can help the grid, through smart charging and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) solutions
  • Get up-to-date on the most significant value chain activities and pilot study findings
  • Analyze and segment the competitive landscape for EV charging
  • Understand and discuss which future technologies, behavioural trends and policy influences will be crucial to creating long-term, sustainable business models


“This was a fantastic course on Electric Vehicles and the impacts of widespread EV adoption on the power supplies around the world. I appreciated both the broad range of topics and the depth of knowledge provided across that range. It was up-to-date, on-point, and well presented in a readily-understandable way filled with loads of real-life examples and analysis.” - Eolian Energy

“The insight provided on the EV and emerging technologies and its impact on the grid is very informative.” - DAR Engineering

“The course was well-designed, engaging, and informative. The facilitator was knowledgeable, friendly, and responsive. His use of charts is legendary. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning more about EVs and the grid, or who wants to contribute to the transition to a cleaner & smarter energy system.” - Eko Electricity Distribution Company

Live online course: how it works

The structure of our virtual learning program is designed to keep the same levels of engagement and networking as our on-site public courses. Course content is delivered through our easy-to-use online learning platform and is supplemented by case studies and practical exercises.

Like our classroom-based public courses, you will have live interaction with our course facilitators and other participants. Our live online courses are led by our experienced instructors, who will provide you with easily digestible content, using knowledge learned from many years in the industry, during scheduled times. Delegates will receive copies of the course materials electronically.
