Gartner: Top 10 Trends Driving the Utility Industry in 2021

‘Electric Vehicles (EVs)’ are identified as one of 3 Technology contributors and enablers to invigorate the Energy Transition by Gartner®, See figure above*.

In their report, Gartner acknowledges the EV opportunity and challenge.  “EVs are quickly becoming one of the largest flexible loads on the grid in many countries” Yet the prospect of EVs delivering non-wires capital investment options and meeting ‘green charters’ for utilities is offset by the complexity of integrating them to the grid. “In order to capture digital transformation opportunities EVs can offer, utilities need to get much better visibility of EVs and their charging patterns”

As Renewables, EVs and other DERs penetration rates rise globally, GE Digital’s Renewable & DER Orchestration solution, including DER enabled ADMS and modular, additive solutions support Utilities with DER registration, modeling, forecasting and scheduling, real-time grid operations and optimization deliver reliability, affordability and customer satisfaction.
