Grid Edge Solutions and Battery Electric Storage Systems

May 18, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

The IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) Philadelphia Chapter is holding a technical meeting. The topic is Grid Edge Solutions and Battery Electric Storage Systems. Our speakers are Jon Judson, Rail and Transit Lead, and John Glassmire, Global Product Manager, Grid Edge Solutions, Hitachi Energy. Fleet electrification is a fast-growing trend both in the public and private transportation segments. By 2040, it is expected that more than 30% of the world’s passenger vehicles fleet and more than 60% of the global bus fleet will be electric, generating an impressive need for electricity. Electric vehicle adoption is sponsored and subsidized to meet global carbon footprint reduction targets as well as improve air and people’s life quality. Charging infrastructure development will have to follow closely, as almost 300 million charging points will be needed globally by 2040 across all segments: private, public and commercial. To prevent a potentially very messy system that is difficult to maintain and somewhat redundant, electric mobility hubs are recommended. These hubs – essentially “charging centers” – offer a more efficient approach to planning in urban and suburban areas, and will also aid the switchover to more digital forms of mobility-energy management. For cars, hubs could be installed in existing infrastructure like car parks, or car rental centers. For public transportation vehicles, depots and terminal stations provide ideal locations. And a system of hubs within and around cities can be planned for efficient energy-mobility integration. Electric mobility hubs are going to face challenges related to the energy transition common to all large electric energy prosumers, often described as the “energy trilemma.” Jon Judson and John Glassmire from Hitachi Energy will give a presentation on fleet electrification current trends and challenges.
