Artificial Intelligence Pilot to Support EV Electricity Demand in Ottawa
April 14, 2022
To meet growing energy needs created by electric vehicles (EVs) in the Ottawa area, the IESO and the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) are supporting a new pilot project by BluWave-ai, Hydro Ottawa, Moment Energy, and Area X.O, that will use artificial intelligence to reduce EV charging during peak demand periods, saving customers money while extending the life of electricity infrastructure.
Through $2.4 million in funding from the IESO’s Grid Innovation Fund, as well as regulatory support from the OEB’s Innovation Sandbox, this project will contribute to technical advances that will help realize the potential of these solutions. Project proponents and their partners are investing an additional $2.4 million. For further information, please see the news release.
