WebinarStandards-Based Solutions for EV Managed ChargingJune 3, 20202:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET60-Minutes Register for WebinarSeamlessly Integrate EVs and other DERs with OpenADRStakeholders strongly contend that an electric vehicle future must include some form of managed charging in order to reap the maximum benefits for consumers, the grid, and society as a whole. A Comprehensive Guide to Electric Vehicle Managed Charging from SEPA identified 38 utility-run managed charging pilot and demonstration projects in 2019. Hear from a utility, a solution provider and a standards facilitation and testing organization about how information protocols like OpenADR and OCPP, can integrate managed charging product solutions with utility systems seamless.You will also learn about:Different use-cases for why managed charging providers want to interconnect to utilities and participate in utility demand response or distributed energy resource programs.How OpenADR protocols are being integrated into managed charging provider product solutionsHow utilities specify and use the protocols to onboard and streamline their relationships with the growing numbers of distributed resources they are integrating.The basics of how OpenADR protocols work to integrate distributed energy resources to the utility grid, and which utilities specify OpenADR.“Managed Charging relies on communication signals originating from a utility or aggregator to be sent to a vehicle or charger to control charging events. These controls can be leveraged to provide grid services.”Learn more about managed charging in A Comprehensive Guide to Electric Vehicle Managed Charging.
