TIER 1 IOU (UTILITY) EV PROGRAM: EV Ownership, Behavioral Demand Flexibility and Grid Predictability

In the fall of 2019, Bidgely was selected to help a utility serving the southeastern USA to design a three-year exploratory pilot program to assess the impact of Bidgely’s UtilityAI™ peak EV load detection and estimation alerts on EV charging behavior, as well as to better understand how residential charging behavior is affecting the utility energy’s grid and their operational systems.

Among program participants, peak charging was reduced by 75%, with 97% of charging occurring at off-peak hours after the program ended. Email open rates were above 75% and the AI solution was more than 90% successful at identifying EV households. Download the case study to learn more.
