Fueling Stations

As electric vehicle adoption increases at a rapid pace, fuel retailers must consider adding EV chargers to their sites. With the growth of EV charging, there’s more demand for readily available electricity.

In fact, fast DC chargers pull hundreds of kilowatts of power that the local grid may not be able to supply. Even if power is available, site owners must carefully navigate between meeting customer needs and facing potentially high demand charges that may completely undermine economics and turn an otherwise profitable site into a lost investment.

The Sparkion Energy Storage system ensures that energy is continuously available. Even when simultaneous charging instances increase, the system helps mitigate demand charges to control operation costs.

Sparkion delivers multiple benefits to fuel retailers:

Ensure power is readily available
Meet EV charging needs
Reduce demand response charges
Establish energy resiliency
Meet regulatory requirements

Have you recently added EV fast charges to your sites?

 

If so, you may be experiencing increases in unplanned utility demand charges. These fees occur as you begin consuming substantially more power.

That’s where the Sparkion solution can help. Sparkion’s Demand Charge Artificial Intelligence Engine (DCAI) tracks your site’s usage patterns including EV charging and combines these insights with real-time site and grid data to optimize onsite energy distribution.
