  47. 47. Smart Charging Management Opportunities<br />Load ShiftingTime based management shifts charging behavior intonon-peak periods<br />Demand valleys can be filled by scheduling charging around a central time <br />Renewable Integration<br />Based on a live wind or solar signal, charging can be synchronized with the availability of renewable energy<br />System Regulation Following an AGC signal, the charging load can be dynamically increase or reduced according to grid needs. <br />Spinning Reserves<br />The flow of energy can be rapidly slowed or stopped, creating capacity in response to an unexpected power disruption<br />Economic Dispatch<br />Following a real-time price signal allows energy economics to determine charging behavior<br />Load Shaping<br />Following an signal or schedule, charging load can be dynamically shaped according to grid needs<br />Load Shaping<br />Economic Dispatch <br />
  48. 48. Preparing for Plug-Ins: What You Can Do<br />Better understand the power of smart charging<br /><ul><li>Assess the importance of controlling vehicle load at the distribution level
  49. 49. Explore various charging scenarios, including load shaping & peak shaving
  50. 50. Investigate synchronizing charging with wind or solar power</li></ul>Acquire valuable learning, critical to strategic planning<br /><ul><li>Gain experience enlisting participation in smart charging programs
  51. 51. Determine system requirements surrounding service area “roaming”
  52. 52. Acquire relevant learning to inform utility, PUC and regulator decision making on EV-related rate schedules</li></ul>Confirm the value of electric transportation<br /><ul><li>Establish the benefits of electric vehicles, confirming efficiency, decreased fuel costs, reductions in green-house gas emissions, etc.</li></ul>How are you preparing for plug-ins?<br />9<br />
