San Francisco-based Greenlots, a provider of open standards-based technology solutions for electric vehicle (EV) networks, has introduced the SKY Smart Charging platform designed to address the needs of the utility and vehicle-grid integration sectors.

According to Greenlots, the SKY Smart Charging platform can help resolve the peak load impact of EV charging through automatic load curtailment, enable consumers to opt in or out of a demand response program, mitigate local transformer overload risk in areas with EV clusters, and create accurate load plans through site- and region-specific demand response management of EV charging.

Greenlots notes that it has received OpenADR 2.0b certification through the OpenADR Alliance. 

"Certification of the Greenlots SKY Smart Charging platform fills an important gap in the growing collection of OpenADR-certified products," comments Barry Haaser, managing director of the OpenADR Alliance. "Utilities can now add EVs as an energy resource to their OpenADR-based demand response programs."
