EV Charger Stations and the Utility Role - Developments, Projects, and Challenges


CPUC has mandated installing 7,500 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) throughout the PG&E territory by the end of 2020. This includes “behind-the-meter” work to install Level 2 charging stations and the direct current (DC) fast chargers. Exponent helped PG&E to develop standards for behind the meter installations for safety and compliance with standards of care. The developed standards are field-tested. In connection with the general efforts, other topics concerning behind-the-meter installations have been researched such as sub-metering through existing junctions; revenue-grade metering and possibility of eliminating the need for traditional meters; and load sharing and load management. This presentation outlines some of the challenges and lessons learned during this effort. It also includes some of the research performed in the relevant areas.
