An important support in Demand Response (DR) programs can be provided by the Electric Vehicles (EVs). EVs may behave as a load to the grid, a supplier of electricity to the grid or an energy storage device. Thanks to the smart grid enabling technologies, Utilities can manage EVs charging time and rates, gather EVs-detailed meter data and, therefore, implement DR programs. In the present paper an overview on DR definitions and a classification of the types of customers involved and implementable programs is reported. Then a special focus on EVs integration in DR programs is given, stressing the valuable services that EVs in smart grid asset can provide. © 2014 IEEE.
