Highlights from SEPA on the the State of Managed Charging 

DATE / TIME: Thursday, January 27, 2:30 to 3:30 pm ET

Hosted by the Electric Transportation Interest Group

Electric Trans

SEPA has tracked and documented over 90 utility-managed charging pilots and programs over the past five years (2017 - 2021). Over this period, managed charging programs have grown in number, program size, sophistication, and diversity of approach. In this Conversation, Garrett Fitzgerald will share insights from SEPA’s two recent managed charging publications and provide an update on the utility perspective of managed charging. He’ll review what has shifted since 2019, and will review a list of managed charging incentives, program design best practices, key insights, and the utilities' lessons learned. He will also make some recommendations for incentive structure and program recruitment.

The two SEPA reports referenced in this Converdation are available here:
