Stakeholders 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 solutions
- How 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.
