Given the localized concern of power disruptions, utilities will be more than willing to pay for the ability to monitor and manage the electricity demand from electric vehicles on their grid. Providing utilities with the information to understand the demand at the granularity of a transformer and the associated ability to manage and shed that demand at a similar level of detail – particularly during peak demand times and events – will become a significant global market as the adoption of electric vehicles is realized.
