The article focuses on the projected energy imbalances on the power system due to the highly variable nature of wind generation. The impact on the Northwest Power Pool (NWPP) region for a 2019 expected wind scenario is examined. The potential of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) or battery electric vehicles (BEV) in mitigating these imbalances is discussed.
