Electric Vehicle Managed Charging is Evolving, Find Out How

With the increasing growth of the EV market and the resulting implications for the power system, managed charging programs are non-negotiable. Utilities are developing programs that will avoid distribution upgrade bottlenecks and mitigate unnecessary costs for utilities. Based on a SEPA survey, utilities’ approach to managed charging is evolving. They’re expanding their managed charging programs to include both passive and active features and starting to pilot new technologies, such as vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle telematics. 25% of surveyed utilities are proposing or piloting V2G. Download this report to discover how utilities can optimize managed charging programs based on survey results, 7 case studies, and a guide to solution providers.
