One of the top electric vehicle (EV) charging service providers in the country, CarCharging, has finalized a partnership agreement with the company Technology with Spirit to begin offering energy storage + rechargeable battery solutions to CarCharging’s extant charging site hosts (as well as future customers, of course), according to recent reports.
The partnership — which will allow CarCharging to offer its customers a variety of energy cost reduction solutions via Technology with Spirit’s energy storage offerings — will give customers the ability to stabilize peaks in energy consumption, thereby lowering demand charges,
With Technology with Spirit’s ability to offer energy storage solutions in variety of different sizes, from the kilowatt-hour (KWh) to the megawatt-hour (MWh), customers will have a fair degree of ability to tailor things to suit their specific needs.
“Energy storage applications benefit properties in that they reduce energy costs by monitoring energy consumption and then, pull energy at off-peak hours, store it, and dispense it at peak hours,” stated Gordon Clements, VP International Sales, TWS. “As a growing market, electric car charging presents a new area of electricity demand, and with their hundreds of partners and thousands of charging stations, we are excited to partner with CarCharging to offer our services.”
“With Blink Network, the software that operates, monitors, and tracks the Blink stations and all of its charging data, we are able to observe real-time charging data and the demand that the stations have on the electricity grid,” commented Michael D Farkas, CarCharging’s Chief Visionary Officer. “By combining Blink EV chargers with TWS’ energy storage solutions, properties are able to use the charging data to manage the energy demand from the charging stations and adjust accordingly.”
