Will Brazil prepare for electric vehicles?
This question refers to the infrastructure needed to meet the demand that the electric sector will have with electric vehicles.
Brazil's fleet is of 60 million cars. Imagine that a portion begins to migrate to electric vehicles. Even if gradually,
Let's simulate - conservatively - what happens considering 10 million electric vehicles. Assuming the charging using a 3 kW source, 6 to 8 hours of duration per night. A demand of 30 GW is reached.
The point I want to make is: this demand is important. Brazil has a maximum demand of 80 GW. Therefore, this expansion of demand needs to be very well planned in generation, transmission and distribution.
For the simple fact that there would be no way to simply "accommodate" this demand considering the current available capacity.
