With most EVs charging at the same time, copious amounts of power are consumed at night. Attend this session to learn about eMotorWerks' software platform that taps into the massive potential of electric vehicle charging to serve as a “flexible, dynamic load” for utility operators to use to balance the production and consumption of grid power.
The intelligent platform taps into the connectivity of its Juicebox chargers to determine charging needs and customer preferences to enable smart charging that maximises benefits to the grid. Customers are rewarded for their flexibility through the JuicePoints system, so that charging is increased when grid power is low and cleanest. It also allows for charging requirements to be altered to very specific geographies or regions depending on the need of the utility. As more and more smart meters are brought onto the grid, this granular control becomes that much more valuable to utilities as they continue to adapt to more renewables, more storage, and more EVs on the grid.
The integrated smart charger that eMotorWerks has built and the cloud-based software platform that supports it is the first to truly leverage EV chargers as smart devices.
