Reducing Grid Strain With Automated Energy Management for EV Charging

Duration: 1 hour

Demand for electricity is on the rise, along with the need to take innovative measures to modernize the grid to meet these demands. The rapid increase in EV adoption will require utilities to expand their grids. The challenge is to build new capacity in time to meet public policy targets that call for thousands more EV passenger cars, commercial trucks, buses, and off-road vehicles in the next decade.

All this expansion could be lengthy and costly, but there are readily available technologies that could help ease this transition. Implementing automated load management systems through charge management software helps control the time and energy load of charging vehicles to fit within load capacity. For fleets this could mean getting charging infrastructure online quicker, and for utilities this could mean providing consistent electricity without needing to add more capacity. 

We’ve already seen success with utilities implementing ALM-friendly practices to help fleets with electric vehicles add charging without the need for mass amounts of new infrastructure. bp pulse fleet customers have used charge management software to automatically control load capacity and respond to flex alerts, without needing to manually plug and unplug vehicles. ALM is a win-win for both utilities and fleets. In this webinar, hear from utility and policy peers on:

  • How to integrate ALM into utilities best practices
  • What policy frameworks are needed ensure mutual success with ALM
  • How ALM works to automatically respond to vehicle charging and energy demands
  • Real-world success of implementing ALM
