Reliable, High-Power Energy
Preparing for high-power EVs is more than installing charging networks. From the power plant to the service station, a new ecosystem is emerging for charging and energy storage, distribution and management. The key to fulfilling our vision and seizing the high-power EV market opportunity is bringing grid-like reliability. That’s why we’re on a mission to design and build the most reliable high-power solutions for:
“Charge Only” and bidirectional “V2G” product designed specifically for continuous operation at rated loads. can support power flow to and from the grid aligned with rapidly advancing vehicle to grid technology and allow integration with power storage and non-grid renewable power resources.
If EV charging occurs in parts of the grid that do not have sufficient capacity “head-room” to accommodate the extra power needs, distributed energy resources (DERs) solutions provide distributed generation and storage.
High-power EVs can be an electricity resource themselves, becoming a “microgrid”. Because getting electricity from a building or meter under someone else’s management can be complex, microgrids offer a way to lessen or even eliminate the complexity of fleet electrification, especially if charging will happen at existing facilities. Microgrids can also help with power availability if the distribution grid can’t accommodate those loads.
Batteries in high-power EVs can provide many of the grid services that stationary energy storage systems can provide and can also be actively managed to reduce the impacts their charging can have on the electric grid – an increasingly important capability as more and more EVs are plugged into the grid.
