Ensure grid reliability in the highest electrification scenarios

Kevala's Professional and Advisory Services team harnesses our grid data analytics platform to deliver a comprehensive and actionable report that informs long-term distribution planning under various electrification scenarios, ensuring electric utilities can prepare the grid to support policy targets.

Assess Grid Constraints and Capacity Needs for Electrification

Identify and analyze the grid's limitations and future capacity requirements to accommodate the growing electrification of transportation and buildings. Understand the necessary timing and location of investments in infrastructure and evaluate the potential impact on the grid, ensuring reliable and efficient energy delivery.

Optimize Cost-Effective Grid Infrastructure Upgrades

Make informed decisions about grid infrastructure upgrades by conducting comprehensive cost assessments. Our study provides actionable insights into the potential costs of building additional capacity, enabling you to prioritize investments and minimize the financial burden on customers.

Evaluate the Impacts on Customers and Energy Equity

Understand the implications of increased costs on customers and energy justice. Our study examines the potential effects of electrification on different customer segments, enabling you to develop equitable rate structures and identify mitigation strategies to address any disparities in energy affordability and access.

Accelerate Smart Investments with Actionable Insights into Electrification

Kevala's Professional and Advisory Services team helps utilities and regulators navigate the complexities of electrification impacts with actionable guidance to support smart investments, strategic planning, and the successful integration of electrification initiatives.

Case Study: Preparing California's Grid for Electrification by 2035

The California Electrification Impacts Study was commissioned by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to determine the distribution grid requirements of state transportation electrification targets.

Kevala analyzed over 100 terabytes of data from Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) to explain when, where, and how much utilities will need to invest in grid upgrades.
