From an individual business standpoint EV integration has traditionally meant that higher loads necessitate the need for larger switchgear and substation equipment. But that isn’t the whole story. Imagine having a fleet of cars that act as a storage battery for your building, allowing infrastructure to take advantage of off-peak power discounts. Energy management systems (EMS) integrated alongside vehicle charge points can be used to decrease peak load. This method of active control is known as peak-load shifting. Electrical Projects Australia is working hard to integrate this level of smart thinking into future projects.
