Title

Vehicle Fleet As a Distributed Energy Storage System for the Power Grid

Abstract

Experts in the field have agreed that the addition of an energy storage unit to vehicles and renewable energy sources benefits their performance, efficiency, cost, and reliability. In this paper, the notion of integration of vehicular with renewable systems so that they can both share the onboard battery unit of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles is discussed.
