To harness business opportunities from this buzzing EV market and the growing TE market, the electric utility companies are busier than ever.

The power demand for charging the EVs are negligible. But the charging grids will face challenges like:

  • Peak hour load management.
  • Discover nearby charging stations.
  • Offer attractive rate plans and offers to customers.

Opportunities lie on the smart and intelligent solution to address the challenges mentioned above. There is also a promising market for infrastructure development to support the government’s plan for Transport Electrification.

Electric Buses, fleets of shared mobility EVs will require highly efficient and professional support for charging and maintenance.

There will be increasing demand for a smart solution for home charging in residential complexes with slow charging during the night and fast charging option in the daytime.

Some innovative concepts like Shared Charging or charging via appointment can be worked upon. Dynamic pricing can encourage customers to charge their EVs during off-peak hours and reduce load during peak hours.

Electric utilities will immensely benefit from the growing EV market. They will play a major role as service providers and will be partners in building a greener future.
