Finalist at EPRI’s Incubatenergy Labs Challenge
Chosen to compete for a demonstration of its energy management and planning solutions
After going through a highly competitive process, Electriphi has been chosen to compete for a demonstration of its energy management and planning solutions at this year’s Incubatenergy™Labs Challenge. The challenge is managed by EPRI in collaboration with a group of leading utilities in North America including American Electric Power (AEP), Ameren, Tennessee Valley Authority, Xcel Energy, New York Power Authority (NYPA), Portland General Electric (PGE), and others.
“The finalists’ applications outline technologies that may provide electric power customers effective energy management solutions and utilities new tools to maintain system quality, reliability, and efficiency while supporting sector-wide decarbonization,” said Erik Steeb, who leads the Incubatenergy Network and Labs program for EPRI. “At Pitch Day, our panel of utilities will select startups to test their solutions in the field through the summer of 2020.”
After announcing its latest round of funding and successful deployments across transit, schoolbus, and private delivery fleets, Electriphi is poised to scale its fleet and energy management solutions to even more customer segments.
Electriphi works with fleet operators and partners like utilities to deploy a software charging management platform that saves energy and operational costs, and simplifies the transition to electric vehicles while ensuring fleet readiness.
Upfront planning and smart energy management is an imperative for large scale vehicle electrification. To further help with the transition, Electriphi also provides electrification advisory and planning solutions that evaluate each fleet’s unique situation. As an entry point for early customers, the company offers a free web-based tool that provides ROI calculations on the impact of electric vehicles and charging for fleet customers.
