Landis+Gyr and Microgrid Labs Strategic Partnership

Landis+Gyr and Microgrid Labs forge strategic partnership to revolutionize Electric Vehicle Fleet Planning and Operations

Landis+Gyr, a global leader in energy management solutions, and Microgrid Labs, a leading innovator in electric vehicle fleet management technology, are delighted to announce a pioneering partnership. This strategic alliance aims to provide electric utilities with an all-encompassing solution, offering comprehensive support for their fleet customers, and empowering large vehicle fleet operators to efficiently plan, simulate, and operate electrified vehicle fleets.

Key Features of the Partnership:

  • Comprehensive Electric Vehicle Fleet Management Platform: Key focus of the collaboration is provision of an all-encompassing platform designed to meet the unique needs of Electric Utilities and Fleet Operators. This platform enables utilities to efficiently advise and manage their electrified vehicle fleets, from planning, design, and simulation to managing day-to-day operations.
  • Comprehensive Fleet Right Sizing: The joint solution incorporates advanced analytics and modeling tools to assist fleet operators in determining the optimal size and composition of their electrified vehicle fleets. By analyzing historical data and predicting future trends, the platform guides fleets in making informed decisions about fleet size, thereby maximizing efficiency, and minimizing investments.
  • Data-driven Decision Support: Leveraging advanced analytics and real-time data, the solution empowers Electric Utilities and Fleet Operators with valuable insights to make informed decisions. This data-driven approach optimizes fleet performance, reduce operating costs, and enhance overall sustainability.
  • Scalable Solutions for Large Fleets: The partnership’s solution is designed to cater to the needs of large vehicle fleet operators, ensuring scalability as fleets grow. This scalability is crucial for Electric Utilities in supporting the expansion of their electric vehicle fleet customers over time.
  • Strategic Rollout Planning: Efficient deployment of electric vehicle fleets requires careful planning and strategic execution. The partnership offers a robust rollout planning module that considers factors such as charging infrastructure availability, feeder constraints, and geographical considerations. This enables utilities to implement grid upgrades in a phased and well-coordinated manner, ensuring a smooth transition and minimizing disruptions to operations.
  • Grid Flexibility Management: EV Load and energy management systems play a vital role in enabling smart grid integration. By facilitating effective bi-directional communication between the charging infrastructure, Grid Infrastructure and Vehicle Infrastructure, both utilities and fleet operators can take advantage of this interoperable solution to ensures that fleet’s charging needs can adapt to future changes in grid capabilities, regulations, and V2G opportunities. Future proofing electric fleets with EV Depot Energy Management technology safeguards against potential grid limitations and allows for seamless integration with evolving energy systems and technologies.
