Yannick Perez presented his last paper « Missing money for EVs: economics impacts of TSO market designs? » at the International Society for New Institutional Economics Conference, Harvard University 18-20 June 2015. The paper is a joint work with Paul Codani and Marc Petit.
Abstract : Electric Vehicles (EVs) can be used as distributed storage units to provide Transmission System Operators (TSOs) with reserve power. This solution has been demonstrated as viable from an economics perspective. However, market design considerations are rarely taken into account in the studies dealing with this topic. We find that market rules can have a significant impact on the expected revenues of an EV fleet providing TSO reserve. In this paper, the authors are concerned with identifying the most important rules, and numbering their impacts on the possible revenues for an EV fleet.
