With the advent of electric vehicles, the question of whether the current electricity grid will support these new consumptions is often raised, but in fact, the introduction of electric vehicles into the electricity system represents a great opportunity to improve the overall efficiency of the system, flattening the daily demand curve and taking advantage of nighttime renewable energy generation.

In addition, the electric system becomes more flexible thanks to the ability of users to manage the demand of electric vehicles according to their needs. In this way, vehicles are recharged when electricity prices are lower, or in response to signals they may receive from the electricity system.

Today, and according to the criteria of the power generation and distribution companies themselves, the transmission grid and system operation are ready for the massive incorporation of electric vehicles.
