ev.energy’s Virtual End Node (VEN) API can plug into any DERMS with ease, actively managing EV charging in line with commands from the DERMS and passing back current and forecasting charging loads for system-wide optimization
In response to dispatches from a DERMS, ev.energy can fully curtail EV charging or alternatively throttle the charging down to a lower power level to keep demand within local network limitations.
While several DERMS platforms offer EV demand response via networked L2 chargers, customer uptake of these chargers has historically been low. Our hardware-agnostic platform can deliver demand response via all leading OCPP charger brands as well as a broad suite of vehicle telematics, for maximum load control.
Electric vehicles are a fundamentally different asset from batteries or thermostats: they are linked to individual mobility and autonomy and need to be managed through high-touch customer engagement. To avoid the negative customer experience some DERMS providers have become infamous for, ev.energy has developed a transparent, customer-friendly mobile app and user interface to provide customers with transparency and control over demand response events.
Using geospatial data from the vehicle’s telematics, ev.energy can curtail charging on a subset of EVs charging on a specific feeder or transformer for highly targeted, network-integrated demand response.
