Electric vehicles (EVs) offer a promising solution to electrify transportation for potential greenhouse gas reductions and cost savings. EVs are also identified as flexible resources for grid integration with the ability to mitigate the increasing complexity issues of the grid, e.g., the duck curve caused by increasing penetration of renewables. The BP Energy Outlook predicts that about 100 million EVs will be on the road worldwide by 2035 .
