The strategies for reducing the fossil-fuel impact of electric vehicles and the impact of electric transportation on pollution, reduced carbon emissions, and fossil-fuel consumption is complicated. In his Renewable Energy World article, Phil Krein, a research leader in the fields of power electronics and motor drives discusses some passive and active strategies to set up incentive EV-charging rate structures that minimize fossil-fuel impact.
An IEEE Fellow, Krein leads the Grainger Center for Electric Machinery and Electromechanics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is a Distinguished Professor at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China. He was awarded the 2021 IEEE Transportation Technologies Award for contributions to electric vehicle battery management and hybrid system optimization.
