106: Charging Ahead with EV Analytics
Session Category : Grid Operations
Electric Vehicles (EVs) is a topic that touches all areas of the utility business – from IT, to forecasters, to grid operations, even customer engagement. Annual demand from EVs for electricity could exceed 400 TWh by 2035, creating the largest opportunity for new load growth in a generation. At the same time, EVs will pose significant distribution network challenges.
Effective use of IoT data will be key to EV market optimization. How utilities build infrastructure today, both for EV charging and for data analytics, may determine their opportunity to capitalize on this unique growth opportunity. The focus of this session is to explore the analytic infrastructure that utilities need to prepare for and benefit from the growth of Electric Vehicles.
