The pilot, launched in 2020, provided participants with Elocity’s EVPlug and a London Hydro-developed mobile app leveraging standardized Green Button energy data to help them easily monitor and manage the electricity consumption of their EV. Customer data privacy and security were ensured by integrating EVPlug with London Hydro’s Green Button Connect My Data platform.
Participants used the London Hydro mobile app to view real-time data captured by the EVPlug and, utilizing the app, were empowered with on/off control, estimated cost per charging session, expected mileage per charge for better planning, and reports on historical charging sessions. The EVPlug technology gave London Hydro a better understanding of customer charging time, behavior, the ability to see the impact of charging loads, and the role of incentives in shifting charging demand to off-peak time.
The pilot demonstrated innovation around real-time, accessible information in the EV charging space for both the customers and the utility. Follow London Hydro on LinkedIn and Twitter.
