Smart EV charging to support grid in energy transition

Smart charging allows owners of Electric Vehicles to plug in during expensive peak hours, without the vehicle drawing the power until cheap off-peak hours. This takes the strain off the electric grid, makes better use of renewable energy and saves drivers money. Without smart charging, local grids could overload and cause blackouts with millions of EV owners plugging in after work. Read more here.

Utility Week: A new-look retail market takes shape

In an article on Utility Week, Nigel Hawkins assesses how the energy market is likely to progress after members have been falling due to the surge in gas prices. As of 2nd February 2022, 27 energy suppliers haver folded since August 2021. From the collapsed pile of new energy suppliers, a few companies may emerge as sector consolidators. The most plausible outcome for the future of the market is a four-pillar structure which is led by Centrica, therefore securing a further enhanced market under a higher price cap. The article can be found here.

The future of utility is being driven by breakthroughs in generation and system integration

The growth of renewable energy generation and customer demand for distributed energy resources (DER) are contributing to utility of the future. The flexible customer demand means we will move from a world where we forecast demand and schedule supply, to a world where we forecast supply and schedule demand. Read more here.

Smart electric grid could save billions says Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

A report released by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has highlighted that - in the largest simulation of its kind - a transactive energy system that gives flexible control over energy supply and use patterns could save consumers $50 billion a year. The simulation showed if the transactive energy system were deployed on the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) grid, peak loads would be reduced by up to 15% - saving up to $5 billion annually in Texas alone. The savings would equal the annual output of 180 coal-fired power plants nationally. You can read the full article from Science Daily here.
