Register for ETIP SNET's Panel at CIGRE Paris Session 2022, "The interaction of electromobility with the power grids"

The European Technology and Innovation Platform Smart Networks for Energy Transition is happy to invite you to the Panel it will held at CIGRE Paris Session 2022.

date:  02/11/2021

Within the scope of ETIP SNET's attendance at CIGRE Paris Session (28th August – 2nd September), a Special Panel entitled "The interaction of electromobility with the power grids" will be hosted on Friday, 2nd September, 9:30 – 11.00 in hybrid mode. The physical event will take place at the Palais des congrès in Paris in Meeting room 352AB.

Come to visit us at the ETIP SNET booth!

You can register your attendance here.

The remote link for connection will be provided at a later stage.

In this panel, the latest relevant reports from the ETIP SNET and CIGRE and ongoing initiatives will be presented and debated.
Professor Nikos Hatziargyriou will moderate the panel, which will involve known experts in the field presenting the ETIP SNET Working Group 1 White paper on EV mobility (E-mobility deployment and impact on grids: Impact of EV and charging infrastructure on European T&D grids – Innovation needs ETIP), the 2Zero Partnership (TBC), Convener on Electric Vehicles, and International perspective from IEA.


The transportation sector is responsible globally for around 25% of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As a result, international policies have set specific strategies for a cleaner transportation sector; e.g., the EU 2020 Climate Target Plan set the ambitious target to reduce GHG emissions by 55% by 2030 (compared to 1990 values), and imposed this reduction on all transportation sectors (road, aviation, naval). Such goals have led to a significant increase in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and the higher availability of EV-charging options.  The deployment of a large number of EV chargers will significantly increase the load of the network, and uncontrolled charging of EVs could provoke significant issues for the grid, which would require major infrastructure reinforcements. Smart charging and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) approaches can mitigate these impacts and, moreover, exploit the flexibility potential of these new loads for better use of RES and more efficient planning and operation of the energy system.
