As electric vehicle adoption accelerates, the real estate industry faces increasing pressure to provide efficient charging infrastructure for tenants and customers. However, concerns about grid stability arise as more people plug into Level 2 chargers at these buildings, leading to higher electricity consumption overnight.

To address these challenges, future-proof their buildings, and find solutions for tenants’ EV charging needs, property owners and developers can collaborate with EV charging providers and utilities to implement smart energy management solutions. These solutions dynamically adjust the energy being used by EV chargers based on a building's real-time energy consumption. As a result, building owners can maximize charging installations without incurring expensive infrastructure costs.

In this session, Thomas Martin, Director of Business Development at SWTCH Energy will discuss how SWTCH’s software makes it more accessible and affordable to install and manage EV charging in both commercial and residential buildings. Drawing from numerous case studies from across North America, Thomas will illustrate how SWTCH has empowered property owners of new and existing buildings to employ energy management solutions to install up to ten times more chargers without costly infrastructure upgrades.

Thomas can also speak to SWTCH’s extensive experience in deploying and implementing demand response programs across their vast 10,000-charger network, further showcasing contributions to grid stability and energy efficiency while accommodating the growing number of EVs on the road. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about SWTCH’s pioneering vehicle-to-grid integrations.
