Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This study investigates the potential of mobile energy storage systems (MESSs), specifically plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), in bolstering the resilience of power systems during extreme events. While utilizing PEVs as an energy source can offer diverse power services and enhance resilience, their integration with power and transport networks may introduce complexities during prolonged power outages. This study highlights the utilization of second-life batteries to bolster resilience and explores different strategies for leveraging MESSs and PEVs to enhance resilience. Additionally, it delves into the examination of relevant public policies and addresses the issues and challenges associated with power services during extreme events.
