FlexGen Power Systems, a provider of energy storage systems and related software, has launched a new system called Plug & Play FlexGen EV Charging Services, which uses the company’s updated HybridOS 9.3 energy management system platform.
FlexGen’s EV charging solution provides a containerized energy storage system that’s designed to optimize energy consumption to ensure maximum value to charging network operators. In addition to energy services for EV Charging, HybridOS 9.3 expands microgrid capabilities to ensure that charging stations can still deliver, regardless of what is happening on the power grid.
FlexGen’s HybridOS automatically optimizes energy usage and power demand for the charging station, ensuring that it never exceeds physical limits and minimizes utility demand charges. The platform is designed to integrate seamlessly with on-site energy resources, and it supports both greenfield and brownfield charging deployments.
FlexGen’s platform also enables participation in regional power markets and demand response programs.
FlexGen currently operates energy storage assets at several sites in the US. Customers include investor-owned utilities, municipalities, cooperative utilities and independent power producers.
“EV’s are the future, and flexible, advanced, available EV charging is the most important step to realizing that future,” said Kelcy Pegler, CEO of FlexGen. “We’re committed to delivering solutions that allow our customers to meet the full range of operational and commercial demands today, while anticipating the needs of tomorrow. Software is the key to meeting those needs. In fact, software is quickly becoming the most important aspect of the energy grid.”
