Better Place is a global electric vehicle network operator and most known for the concept of battery switching to enable range extension and a â??no-compromise??? solution for drivers to make the switch to electric vehicles.? What is less known publicly is the ability of BP to operate its networked charging infrastructure as a virtual generator and electric grid storage asset in coordinate with utility and grid operations.? With little or no operating cost, utility integrated EV charging operations could be the â??killer app??? for utility-scale storage.? ? This talk introduces Better Place from a utility operations perspective and will share how networked and centrally controlled EV charging infrastructure could become the â??smartest part of the smart grid??? for a generation to come.
