About G4V

Very soon electric vehicles (EV) and especially plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV) will be gradually introduced to the EU market. Although electricity is available everywhere in Europe, the impact of a large scale introduction of EV and PHEV needs to be investigated in detail in order to optimise the infrastructure and make use of the inherent opportunities this represents for the operation of smart grids and energy efficiency.

The objective of G4V is to develop an analytical method to evaluate the impact of a large scale introduction of EV and PHEV on the grid infrastructure and a visionary “road map” for the year 2020 and beyond, taking into account all stakeholders and generating fast and openly available results.
