Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) have launched an electrified transportation sector. Researchers will evaluate the effects of electrifying transportation on energy use and emissions. They will study PHEVs as distributed energy systems, assessing their potential to accommodate renewable energy and link the transportation, utility, and building sectors. The project will culminate in a symposium on the electrified transportation sector and its implications for New York State.
