SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) October 18, 2017
With millions of plug-in electric vehicles in use worldwide, demand for workplace charging solutions is experiencing enormous growth and ON World is seeking participants to guide a research investigation into this opportunity.
“Today, tens of thousands of enterprises are using Internet of Things platforms to streamline operations, automate processes, reduce costs and to provide enhanced services to retain employees,” said Mareca Hatler, ON World’s research director. “Energy management continues to be a major IoT adoption driver and in the next few years there will be millions of electric vehicles that will be integrated in workplace IoT systems.”
Technology driven workers are purchasing plug-in electric vehicles and many enterprises are investing in on-site charging to retain these employees. As this market grows, it will become increasingly important to ensure EV charging stations are networked and integrated with building control systems to better manage users, maximize energy savings and manage costs. For IoT software and hardware developers, EV smart charging is an important cleantech market that will increasingly integrate with smart buildings.
In 2022, there will be 1.2 million EVSE connectors installed in North America. EV chargers in private locations such as multi-tenant apartments, office buildings and workplaces will increase by 955% from 2016, nearly two times faster than public locations.
In this multi-client research study, sponsor companies will guide our investigation into North America workplace charging, building controls, smart grid platforms and associated facility requirements including but not limited to:
- Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE)
- Communications technologies
- IP addressable power sources (charging stations, batteries)
- Software platform requirements and needed features
- Building energy management (BEM) system adoption and integration
- Smart grid, distributed renewable energy and cloud integration
- Other issues related to workplace EV charging and energy management
This anonymous study includes several participant levels. More information is available from: https://onworld.com/studies/evworkplace
