J1.1 Transactive real time tariffs and transportation electrification
Mark Martinez, Southern California Edison & Ryn Hamilton, Energetics
Southern California Edison has embarked on a three year field experiment called the Dynamic Rate Pilot to explore the opportunities of an automated price elastic signal that includes real time transactive pricing models that can be applied to electric vehicle chargers and other forms of energy storage. In parallel SCE and the other California investor-owned utilities are operating the most comprehensive and aggressive electric transportation infrastructure programs in the nation. This presentation will share early lessons from both the Dynamic Rate Pilot regarding customer responsiveness and opportunities for automated price elastic signals and insights from Energetics’ impact evaluation of statewide EV charging pilots.

J3.2 AI-Driven Solutions for Residential and Fleet EV Charging
Chris Galbraith – BlueWaveAI
The rapidly-increasing adoption of passenger EVs and electrified transport fleets is expected to have a strong effect on electricity grid operations in the next few years, as these grids become the new “fueling stations.” Utilities face a complex new challenge in the management of residential EV chargers and supply of fleet operators, given grid capacity constraints. These operations require graceful charging management to avoid overloading the grid infrastructure while mixed EV/diesel fleets require a fleet orchestration solution which coordinates disparate energy systems and logistics. An AI-enabled, distributed software platform can optimize vehicle charging, load models, market pricing, local energy storage, and behind-the-meter renewables to reduce operating costs and help defer and reduce CAPEX for fleets and distribution system operators.

J4.2 Solving the Peak Demand Problem in EV Charging
Gary Morsches – DemandQ
EV charging consumes substantial power, but meeting the demand peak is a major challenge from a cost and reliability standpoint. The variable cost of peak demand charges, if left uncontrolled, can account for 90% of the monthly electric bill for a charging station and exceed $1,000,000/year. DemandQ’s proven Intelligent Demand Optimization software flattens demand peaks and predictively manages fueling cost exposure while meeting all fleet operational timing requirements. This secure software system operates seamlessly with all OCPP-compliant charging platforms and levers an array of data inputs to instantly formulate an optimal charging strategy and dynamically respond to Demand Response calls.
The future of retail is electric. As we approach a more sustainable future, you can expect to see electric vehicles on the road and various charging stations at shopping malls, restaurants, businesses, and other public spaces. Installing and operating EV charging stations represent a new way for retailers to attract more customers and increase customer loyalty. It provides additional revenue opportunities by selling goods and services to EV owners while they wait for charging. Retailers can use charging stations to offer free Wi-Fi, free parking, give away free charging sessions to attract customers or even make additional revenue with advertising.

J 4.5 Dividend Account Parking: More Fairness & Transparency; Less Driving
J4.5 Dividend Account Parking: More Fairness & Transparency; Less Driving
Mike Bullock – Evolved Wireless Inc
Bundled-cost and bundled-benefit car-parking systems (erroneously called “free”) are defined, showing that they are not free and that they increase the drive-alone mode, since non-drivers lose just as much money as drivers, due to the parking. Dividend Account Parking (DAP) is presented as a mitigation measure for any Climate Action Plan (CAP) or for any application where sustainability is a goal. The parking is shared, convenient, fully automated, and value priced with a congestion-pricing algorithm. Earnings go to those losing money because the parking is provided. Motivations are provided, based on an Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA) paper.
J 4.6V 13 Real World EV Truck Case Studies (Virtual)
J3.6 13 Real World EV Truck Case Studies
Dave Schaller – NACDE
Everyone wants to know about battery electric trucks in actual fleet operations but there are relatively few out there. NACFE has recently completed a demonstration of 13 different models of battery electric trucks all across the US and Canada. Videos, telematics, metrics and so much more bring these trucks to life for all to see the differences in applications, terrain, drivers, loads and so much more.
Terminal tractors are a great use that doesn’t involve range anxiety and actually works better than current emission diesel engines. E-commerce vans are already happening and both drivers and consumers love them. Medium-duty box trucks are a great first step in the MD market, but some other MD segments will be tougher to serve. Regional haul tractors work in a subsection of the marketplace where the weights and distances fit current capabilities. Long haul tractors are not ready to perform just yet, but battery advancements and hydrogen fuel cells could change that.
NACFE can share what is happening as well as both the benefits and challenges.
Utility companies need to get on board NOW. Fleets can get EV trucks in 6 to 9 months, but infrastructure is not ready to deploy that fast. PUC’s also need to learn how to speed up procedures to enable decarbonization in their own states.
