The growing number of electrical vehicles (EV) have many benefits, but also poses a challenge when it comes to the charging infrastructure. The new Porsche Taycan can charge at 400kW. This is the equivalent of the average load of almost 400 homes!
When EVs form a substantial part of the car fleet, our grid is simply not equipped to meet peak demand for charging, and even less so, to meet demand for fast-charging whilst traveling; waiting lines are already increasing. ReFlex™ batteries can help shave this peak demand for EV charging by continuously charging 24/7 from the grid or any other available source, and then simultaneously pulse discharging at high rate into EVs as they arrive intermittently.
Another area where peak demand can lead to grid instability is seen in ports. Vessels, such as cruise ships, require massive external power supply when their engines are switched off due to emissions constraints. This is where ReFlex™ can help maintain grid stability in ports.
