ENTSO-E developed its first position paper on Electric Vehicle (EV) integration into power grids. Although electric chargers traditionally connect to the distribution grid, the proliferation of EVs will affect the transmission grid as well, not to mention the flexibility services that they might provide. The European green energy transition will indeed lead to a boom of electric vehicles over the next few years.

This position paper is based on the ENTSO-E Vision 2030. It analyses the challenges but also the numerous opportunities of this evolution for the Transmission System Operators (TSOs), and provides a set of key recommendations to enable the full deployment of EV technology.

Finally, this document also provides an overview about the ongoing TSO projects related to electric vehicles.
