Renting Out Private EV Charging Stations

The early adopters of plug-in vehicles cut the path for all later adopters. Many early plug-in vehicle drivers built their own plug-in vehicles. Others worked with manufacturers to show their support for plug-in vehicles and, later, to get in line for groundbreaking plug-ins like the GM EV1 and the Nissan LEAF.

Current EV Charging Equipment Market & Innovation Trends, Part 2

The significant, constant usage of electricity from a single source like a plug-in vehicle has opened up a new market for grid-scale demand management. Grid-scale demand response bundles charging plug-in vehicles together into a single demand unit when they are using smart chargers connected to a utility. The utility can then have the charging speed throttled up and down to balance the electricity load on the grid.
