BluWave-ai's hosts a panel of world leaders innovating in the widespread electrification of transportation. The panel will cover EV use cases from municipal buses, transport delivery, and airport ground support equipment electrification. The panel will dive deep into the challenges and opportunities for electrifying transportation featuring from perspectives across the smart city equation: fleet operator, equipment manufacturer, distribution utility, network connectivity, and the intelligent software. The transition from all-diesel fleets to adapting to a mixed fleet centered around electric vehicles is groundbreaking work in the field of transportation. BluWave-ai will tie together the roles of the different stakeholders, explaining how the intelligent use of real-time data and AI can be used for major savings for all.
BluWave-ai Global Energy Transition Summit: AI Software Unlocking EV Onboarding for Grids and Fleets
Virtual, April 13, 2022, 11am-12pm EST
The next installment of the BluWave-ai Global Energy Transition Summit delves into a key energy transition trend for 2022: the large proliferation of passenger EVs and electrified transport fleets and how this phenomenon is affecting operations of electricity grids, as these grids become the new “fueling stations.” Managing residential EV chargers and supplying fleet operators in the grid is complex from the utility side given grid capacity constraints. These operations require graceful charging management within the utility grid to avoid overloading the grid infrastructure. Transit and freight fleet operators are also trying to maximize EV miles serviced by offsetting diesel miles driven with their fleets to reduce emissions and operating costs. This requires fleet orchestration to manage these mixed fleets. Fleet orchestration coordinates disparate systems around fleet management including chargers, vehicles, depot energy management, solar generation, battery storage, real-time energy pricing, and weather. These needs are addressed by the EV Everywhere and EV Fleet Orchestrator products from BluWave-ai.
