This report from the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and their partners explores how utilities can influence home charging behaviors through EV time-varying rates that incentivize residential customers to charge off-peak thereby minimizing distribution system impacts and avoiding the need for costly infrastructure upgrades and investments. The survey results show that customers on an EV-specific time-varying rate were more familiar with the rate rules and more likely to charge off-peak compared to their generic time-varying rate counterparts.
Combining results from an industry survey with personal insights of utility industry experts, the paper delivers recommendations and best practices for improving how utilities should support, plan and deploy EV charging infrastructure.
This comprehensive guide provides readers with a complete understanding of managed charging, its potential benefits, the current industry state, utility program requirements, how managed charging communication pathways relay signals, and define the vendor landscape to date.
