WeaveGrid is featured in the Association of Energy Services Professionals’s (AESP) Energy Intel Magazine, where we discuss why collaboration between automakers and utilities is crucial to the success of EV managed charging programs.
As EV adoption accelerates, the automotive and electric utility industries are coming together in a new way. These industries are crucial stakeholders in the electrification transition, however there is another stakeholder whose involvement is often overlooked: the EV driver. “Elevating the EV Driver Experience to Drive Greater EV Adoption” discusses how collaboration between these stakeholders will be necessary to offer drivers a positive, consistent, and reliable EV driver experience and enable both electric utilities and automakers to achieve their goals.
Our Key Takeaways:
- UX: With both utilities and automakers influencing the EV driver experience, collaboration will be necessary to avoid contradiction and conflict in the EV driver experience.
- Vehicle Capabilities: Automakers can offer utilities valuable insights into the technical capabilities of their vehicles and namely how this variety impacts EV managed charging program design, helping utilities maximize program participation and effectiveness.
- Driver Personas: Utilities can benefit from automakers' powerful understanding of driver behaviors and preferences as they design and deploy EV managed charging solutions.
