Will the grid collapse?

Conference co-chair and moderator:
Henrik Glette, VP, Communications, Statnett

The emerging mass deployment of electric cars combined with (ultra) fast charging and new household appliances with high peak loads (such as induction tops) can pose a challenge to the grid infrastructure and in worst cases lead to grid overload. This panel will bring together energy experts from US, China and the Nordics to discuss this potential risk. Where would grids need to be strengthened or modernized? How could EVs actually balance rather than overload grids? What can other countries do to avoid challenges in the future?
