Increased Demand, Increased Opportunity
As the prevalence of electric vehicles continues to grow, so does the demand on the grid. These new technologies can create opportunity by integrating chargers and vehicles, offering greater insight into demand giving you the ability to make more informed decisions.
Accelerate V2G Charging
Connecting vehicles to the grid (V2G) opens the door to moving energy where and when it’s needed. Bidirectional charging allows two-way access to the grid for vehicles that can charge at the least expensive time of the day, and return unused energy to the grid.
Empower EV Owners to Take Charge
Charging EVs at home is more cost-efficient, as consumers pay a fee for energy that comes from the same source that already provides electric power to their homes. It’s more convenient for customers to charge while they sleep or work from home. And it’s a lot safer to charge from the comfort of home than hanging out in a parking garage or on the street at a public charging station.
Support Innovative Rate Design
Charging their EVs at a fixed price during off-peak load times is just one example of how Virtual Peaker utility partners are taking advantage of EVs. We’re working with forward-thinking utilities to develop creative solutions to manage EVs and shape the future of the grid.
