The Vast Potential of Managed Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric vehicle chargers now outnumber gas stations
in some countries. They’re getting easier to find. They’re
easier to install in homes. And they’re getting way smarter.

So how can we harness all these chargers for the benefit of the
grid and consumers?

In this special podcast episode, produced in
partnership with Enel X, we’re exploring the vast potential of
electric vehicle chargers. We’ll talk with Giovanni Bertolino,
the head of e-mobility for North America at Enel-X, about a concept
called managed charging. It’s also known as intelligent
charging.

Bertolino’s team deploys networks of chargers that
can adapt to pricing and grid needs — providing demand response
services, and potentially, real-time services to manage the
frequency of the grid. 

We speak with Bertolino about the rise of managed charging. We
started with the underlying market conditions: the grid is getting
saturated with wind and solar. So how can chargers paired with
demand response help support more renewables?

Large energy users partner with Enel X to manage risk on the
energy markets, maximize payments through demand response, and
finance upgrades to facilities to improve demand response earnings.
They also increasingly work with Enel X to use chargers to manage
the grid.
