Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)

Project Area(s): 
Advanced Vehicles and Fuels

PHEVs promise to link electricity and gasoline markets because they can use both grid-supplied electricity and liquid fuels. Through this project, TSRC is exploring the fuel choices of PHEV owners if they were to use current electricity tariffs and real-time electricity pricing. Additionally, we are investigating the grid impacts of charging large numbers of PHEVs. TSRC is also evaluating the economics of the vehicle purchase decision with respect to fuel prices and battery costs.
