EV Charging Solutions for Utilities
We work with utilities to deploy EV charging solutions to serve drivers in your area while managing current and future EV loads without straining the grid.
Deploying EV charging stations at utilities
The dramatic growth anticipated in the EV sector – with half of new car sales predicted to be electric by 2040 – will create an equally dramatic demand for electricity; securing a stable grid tomorrow depends on innovative charging technology today. At Shell Recharge Solutions, we provide utilities with innovative, open, and data-driven solutions to help you serve this new EV customer load while maintaining the reliability and stability of the electrical grid.
Shell Sky software for utilities
Our network management solution delivers real-time visibility into the status of all your utility charging stations, ports, and related components at a glance, including the real-time status of EV chargers, updates, and reporting.
Variable Pricing Engine
With our flexible pricing engine, utilities can set charging rates based on usage, time intervals, or session; assign physical or virtual groups different pricing rates to physical or virtual groups; and set discounts, free charging, subscription pricing, transaction, and idle fees.
Billing & Payment
Utilities can manage all billing and payment for your utility EV charging network direct from Shell Sky software.
Advanced Analytics & Reporting
Utilities can get access to charging stations’ utilization data, analytics, and reporting. Set up alerts that will help increase charger uptime. Additionally, download customizable reports on charging sessions, revenue earned, energy delivered, and CO2 emissions avoided
We help utilities:
Implement successful utility EV programs
As a utility provider, we understand the challenges utilities face which allows us to successfully develop and implement EV charging programs that accelerate EV adoption. Our EV charging solutions help utilities manage EV charging infrastructure as well as plan for future development. We help utilities develop charging programs to accelerate EV adoption, offering the latest in network solutions – all while providing a seamless charging experience for drivers.
Efficiently manage EV charging infrastructure
Our software offers unique insights into the utilization profile of your EV charging stations deployed throughout your service territory. By providing advanced analytics and support, Shell Recharge Solutions helps you manage your current EV charging infrastructure and plan for future development.
Ensure grid stability with Demand Response
Shell Recharge Solutions is leading the EV industry’s focus on Open Standards. Our software is built on Open Standards, supports OpenADR, and enables you to successfully design and implement EV Demand Response programs that accommodate the charging needs of drivers while maintaining grid reliability and security.
Transform charging assets into a flexible grid resource and avoid expensive grid upgrades
EV charging demand can be unpredictable, making it complex to manage as part of a broader energy grid. Our EV charging solution allows grid operators to aggregate and controls their EV charging loads to ensure an efficient and balanced grid. Managing your charging load also ensures that your power usage and capacity requirements can remain the same —so you don’t have to expand distribution infrastructure and can target new investments.

Southern California Edison (SCE) Demand Response Workplace Charging Pilot
At SCE in Southern California, Shell Recharge Solutions has deployed nearly 100 Level 2 chargers throughout SCE's territory as part of their Demand Response Workplace Charging Pilot. This pilot has enabled testing of pricing scenarios via a web-based platform and driver messaging, as well as seamless enablement of demand response. Insights gleaned from these projects serve as the blueprint for utilities looking to adopt and expand EV infrastructure. Download to learn more.
