Electric Grid Modernization involves comprehending renewable sources of energy, storage systems, actively monitoring power use, anticipating demand, and possibly shifting demand to smooth usage peaks. The last particularly helps to decarbonize the grid through avoiding the need to bring online dirty sources of energy to meet demand peaks. Electric Vehicle charging lends itself well to demand shifting. Perhaps you are at home and can delay charging for several hours or at work with enough charge to get back home, or just opportunisticly charging while shopping. Our solution leverages the open source project EdgeX Foundry to monitor and control one or more ChargePoint (CP) Charge stations. We invite you to explore our open source project Kinney, which provides Go and Python clients for CP's SOAP API and both a replay and full simulator (Covid-19 lockdown accelerated) We share alternative curtailment algorithms that take into consideration location, time of day, amount of vehicle charge, and charging patterns. Towards grid modernization the capturing contextual importance of various loads will help developing trade-off algorithms. Learn, experiment, drive sustainability!
