Intelligent Breakers Deliver on Key Data to Advance EV Infrastructure
Intelligent Power Management Key to Advance EV Infrastructure
Circuit breakers are ubiquitous and integral to powering homes, businesses and communities. Traditionally, they’ve been used to provide vital safety functionality. Now, new generation, intelligent circuit breakers hold the key to helping solve challenges with next-generation electric vehicle infrastructure and grid modernization challenges resulting from increasing electrification. Next generation breakers can help utilities, building owners and households to better manage on-site distributed energy resources including solar, storage and EV charging. This session will address evolving electrical codes, regulations and needs associated with increased electrification from electric vehicles, and show attendees how intelligent breakers can solve critical challenges through new-found insights into the electric system from a foundational component. Session attendees will learn how intelligent circuit breakers can be combined with control, on-site generation and energy storage to create more resilient homes and buildings.
