Join Us for:
Managed Charging: Blending Insights from the Customer and the Grid

Moderated by Allison Hamilton of NRECA
Featuring: Wendy Brummer of Pacific Gas and Electric, John Powers of Extensible Energy, and Hilary Polis of Opinion Dynamics
Thursday, November 3, 2022 | 12:30 to 1:30 pm ET

Opinion Dynamics and Extensible Energy partnered with PG&E to complete an analysis of the charging patterns of 71,000 PG&E Electric Vehicle (EV) owners and a survey of 3,000 PG&E EV owners. By integrating research findings from the customer and grid perspectives, we will share insights on common customer segments of PG&E EV chargers along with survey results that explain differences in charging patterns.

This will include sharing novel insights about EV owners’ perceptions of benefits, concerns, and overall attitudes towards allowing their utility to manage their charging. As EVs gain traction as a load management resource, insights from this study will provide practitioners with key takeaways for designing managed charging programs in ways that meet customer and grid needs from the region with the highest EV adoption in the country.

This Dialogue will also include a discussion of where the industry needs to grow to support the scaling of EVs as a grid resource.
