SEEDZ Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Workshop
Enterprise Deployment of EV Infrastructure and Emerging Energy Management Approaches
Wednesday, November 6, 2013
10:00 am – 2:30 pm

The Bay Area and Silicon Valley rank first among the world’s urban centers in adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). Many local corporations, institutions and municipalities have recently deployed electric vehicle charging infrastructure at their facilities, and are planning to expand these deployments as PEV adoption grows. In the SEEDZ area alone, there are now several hundred charging stations, serving the needs of employees, customers and constituents.
Locally, energy use from EV charging is becoming material for hosting organizations, and for the electric grid as a whole. More broadly, PEVs represent a new kind of ‘Distributed Energy Resource’ – a flexible source of demand for electric power, and in the future, a potentially flexible source of supply.
This workshop will focus on local trends in enterprise deployment of PEV charging infrastructure, related organizational issues and challenges. In addition, it will concentrate on emerging energy management challenges, opportunities and approaches associated with PEV charging. The workshop will feature interaction with electric vehicle infrastructure experts, including facility and energy managers (customers), integrators, utility interests, leading research organizations, service providers and operators.
10:00am – 10:15am

Conclusions and Discussion of Next Steps
Key questions to be addressed in the workshop
- What are the latest local trends in deployment of EV charging infrastructure at corporate and institutional locations?
- How are these programs typically structured? what are the benefits? what are typical program challenges and solutions?
- Are cost/energy impacts of EV charging becoming ‘material’ to hosting organizations? to the grid? how will EVs impact demand for electricity in the future?
- How does EV charging infrastructure typically work? how does EV infrastructure typically ‘interface’ with a hosting organization’s energy management systems and processes?
- How does EV charging impact a hosting organization’s energy bill? What is the incremental cost of the electricity serving EV infrastructure? Are demand charges significant?
- Are energy costs recovered, and if so, how? can costs be managed and minimized?
- what are the challenges and opportunities associated with demand-side energy management and EV charging infrastructure? can demand management, DR, and frequency regulation be supported?
- What role will fast charging infrastructure play? how?
- Are future vehicle-to-building or vehicle-to-grid scenarios realistic? when? how would they operate?
- Are there emerging approaches, standards and/or protocols for comprehensive integration of EV infrastructure with a host organization’s energy management systems?
- Are there opportunities for hosting organizations to participate in strategic EV infrastructure integration test projects, with the support of the California Energy Commission, Electric Power Research Institute, PG&E, and/or other major institutions?
The workshop has been developed under Joint Venture Silicon Valley’s Smart Energy Enterprise Development Zone (SEEDZ) initiative. SEEDZ is a Silicon Valley-based public/private collaboration focused on building the ‘smart energy’ network of the future – demonstrating and delivering leading power performance and sustainability benefits on community-wide scale.
