Is EV charging at night bad for the grid? Stanford researchers think so

Stanford researchers claim that EV charging at night destabilizes the grid and generates more carbon emissions than charging during the day. EV owners know that one of the most significant benefits to owning an electric vehicle is that you can charge it at night and be fully charged the following day, hardly ever having to worry about finding a charging location or scheduling it into your day or week.

Charging cars at home at night is not the way to go, Stanford study finds

The vast majority of electric vehicle owners charge their cars at home in the evening or overnight. We’re doing it wrong, according to a new Stanford study. In March, the research team published a paper on a model they created for charging demand that can be applied to an array of populations and other factors. In the new study, published Sept. 22 in Nature Energy, they applied their model to the whole of the western United States and examined the stress the region’s electric grid will come under by 2035 from growing EV ownership. In a little over a decade, they found, rapid EV growth alone could increase peak electricity demand by up to 25 percent, assuming a continued dominance of residential, nighttime charging.
