EV ChargePod™ enables the ‘Grid of the Future’
California’s ambitious climate change goals will impact the grid as significantly more renewables and electric transportation are mandated. The grid already has issues handling California’s 30% renewable mix today, which will be exacerbated by the State’s 50% and 100% renewable targets set for 2030 and 2050. The State is committed to disrupting the transportation sector, being the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. With electrification currently the most viable strategy to reduce GHGs, California wants drastically more EVs, but there are serious challenges ahead powering these EVs. Moreover, automakers agree that a convenient network of fast chargers must be established for mass EV adoption -- but faster charging using current equipment means bigger grid impacts and higher costs.
Intertie provides a turnkey, end-to-end solution
The patented EV ChargePod™ is a plug and play smart grid solution, that uniquely combines a modular smart-grid and large-scale battery storage at the charging point-of-sale, to simultaneously deliver super-fast charging, integrate solar, manage site electric use, supply grid services and provide other value-added services. Intertie combines hardware, software and services to provide the site host with a turnkey energy & charging platform and other revenue sources to generate multiple revenue streams with the EV ChargePod™.
