EV Active Managed Charging
Identify. Optimize. Shift. Manage. Bidgely is helping utilities turn the EV revolution into an opportunity to build a flexible, resilient grid of the future.
The EV revolution is here, giving utilities a big opportunity to expand revenue by investing in new offerings. However, the opportunity does not come without challenges such as increased load, peak demand, and grid disruption. In order to realize the benefits while mitigating risks, utilities must understand what is happening behind the meter with EVs, embracing analytics to make data-driven decisions.
Bidgely offers the most holistic, scalable, and universal electrification solution in the industry, covering both the utility and consumer journey, collectively moving the industry towards a clean energy future where large EV and solar loads with varying rates and incentives are assets, not disruptions.
The heart of the solution is Bidgely’s AI-enabled data science algorithms that detect EVs on the grid with 90%+ accuracy and illuminate charging patterns, using AMI data with no hardware required. This visibility enables utilities to make data-driven EV management decisions, increase EV program ROI by targeting their highest load-shift-potential customers, and then engage EV owners with accurate and actionable insights.
Increase EV awareness and adoption, improve customer satisfaction, and become a key advisor for your customers’ EV journey. Bidgely can help you identify customers likely to make the switch to an EV. And once they purchase an EV, Bidgely provides positive reinforcement and education on how to best leverage utility programs such as time of use rates or rebates.
No two customers are the same, so Bidgely’s precision EV targeting gives utilities visibility into each customer’s charging behavior through appliance-level meter data disaggregation to create a “segment of one.” This customer-level insight enables targeting of the highest value candidates for dynamic “peak to off-peak” EV programs.
Align value on both sides of the meter with TOU rates. Align customers to the right TOU rates and help them maximize their savings. Bidgely’s EV solution helps utilities target the best candidates for EV TOU rates and then engage them with relevant, value-focused prompts and promotions. Once those customers are enrolled and aligned to the appropriate rate, we then enable personalized coaching based on their specific energy use profiles.
Other solutions in the industry use an opt-in method that requires either a hardware device, a car/charger API, or that users upload their data. These solutions are costly and lack scalability. Bidgely’s patented and accurate EV load disaggregation allows you to learn the following about all the users in your service area in an opt-out fashion, without any incentive per user, and at the aggregate or individual level:
Bidgely’s Active Managed Charging is an end-to-end solution designed to recruit, enroll, connect, and incentivize EV owners for participation and then actively control their vehicle charging through telematics—streamlining the delivery of value on both sides of the meter.
