Power Assist

Get more customers in and out

Offer fast-charging services even if your operation is located where the grid can’t provide enough power. Sparkion’s SparkCore™ energy management system can integrate with your energy storage system to supplement grid power where capacity is limited to deliver more power and allow more customers to charge up quicker without making expensive infrastructure upgrades. You can even instruct our intelligent solution to follow a personalized algorithm for your business model to prioritize power boosts to the first customer in line, or those special VIP guests.

Energy Shifting

Employ a cost-effective charging schedule

By charging your battery using grid power at times when electricity costs less, you can lower your operational costs. Sparkion’s SparkCore™ energy management system automatically optimizes your charging and discharging to ensure reliable, cost-effective operation of all your site assets based on varying prices, renewable production, changing loads and available grid capacity.

Ancillary Services

Monetize your network

Increase the value of your onsite renewable energy, EV chargers and energy storage system by participating in grid programs such as demand response in the U.S. and frequency response in Europe. Sparkion is the only solution that integrates with all your site assets and uses real-time insight to automatically bid into these programs when opportunities arise, so you can generate additional revenue while seamlessly maintaining your everyday operations.

Breaker Protection

Avoid system shutdowns

When your EV chargers need more power than the grid can provide, the breaker can trip, shutting down your site and your business. While battery backup power can avoid shutdowns, energy storage must be properly managed to kick in at the right times.

Sparkion’s SparkCore™ energy management software and controller solution uses real-time, meter-fed site and grid data to determine when additional power is required and directs the battery to discharge. Even in the event of a battery error, SparkCore™ will ensure your chargers stay online to ensure power resilience so you can build a reputation for reliable service.

EV Load Management

Take control of your EV charging

Managing your EV charging is critical for reliable, cost-effective operations. Sparkion’s SparkCore™ on-site energy management system enables real-time power monitoring to control your EV charging network for optimal economics and an ideal customer experience.

Peak Shaving

Increase your margin per charging session

Demand charges are typically based on your highest level of grid use during a billing period. Sparkion’s SparkCore™ energy management system helps align your business operations with grid conditions, ensuring your battery charges before and deploys during your peak demand periods to reduce your grid consumption and avoid extra utility costs for the highest profit margins.

EVSE Max Available Power Allocation

Optimize available power use

With a capped amount of electricity to work with on your grid-connected site, every kilowatt must count. When Sparkion’s SparkCore™ EMS detects available power in real-time, it puts it toward good use at charging ports so that nothing is wasted and extra power becomes profit.

Peak Load Forecasting

Make informed planning decisions

Understanding when your site uses the most electricity is critical for avoiding demand charges and high utility bills. Predicting future demand patterns can inform your operational and capacity planning decisions. Sparkion’s intelligent SparkPredict™ software analyzes your site’s energy use (from EV chargers, renewable assets, batteries and more) for a comprehensive understanding of traffic patterns. This intelligence directs the SparkCore™ EMS to better prepare by automatically implementing—and continually refining—a personalized site plan. With efficient, optimized energy usage and consumption, you can enjoy maximum available power with minimal operational costs.

Renewables Integration

Reap renewable energy benefits

Sparkion’s SparkCore™ energy management system can communicate with your onsite renewable energy and storage systems for maximum benefits. For example, charging your battery with solar power offers a cost-effective alternative when the price of grid electricity peaks. SparkCore™ helps find the best way to bring renewables into your customized operational model to add more value to your business and achieve sustainability goals that align with those of your customers.
