EV Opportunities for Electric Companies

Strategies for Electric Companies to Maximize the Value of Plug-In Electric Vehicles

July 12, 2016 - 2:00 pm EDT

Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) represent a significant opportunity for electric companies in many world regions to increase desirable load, which can increase household energy consumption by 50% or more. With the proper incentives and management, PEVs can be charged at times of lower peak demand to increase baseload power. Emerging communications standards enable PEV charging to be synchronized with renewables generation. Because the load is somewhat discretionary, PEVs can be combined with stationary storage and distributed energy resources (DER) into demand response and other grid services. In this webinar, John Gartner, Senior Research Director with Navigant Research, will be joined…

At the same time, governments are pushing for increasing emissions reductions and cities are increasingly regulating private car usage. All these factors will work together to… Listen To Replay

Analytics for Power Utilities

Navigating the Adoption Cycle

May 17, 2016 - 2:00 pm EDT

As utilities become data-rich enterprises through the growth of data from smart meters, distribution assets, and customer-sited resources, the need to develop an infrastructure to support big data analytics (BDA) is undeniable. Until now, most analytics applications within utilities have been standalone—and often homegrown—applications. But as in other industries, the utilities of today must develop an infrastructure that incorporates enterprise BDA. However, even after deciding to cultivate an enterprise BDA… Listen To Replay
