EV Energy Management System for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings

Updated: Mar 28




Future-Proof Your Building’s Electric Infrastructure with an EV Energy Management System (EVEMS) Designed for Multi-Unit Residential Buildings 


The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) is reshaping not only our commutes but also our living spaces. As more residents opt for EVs, the demand for efficient charging solutions in multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) is increasing. Enter EV Energy Management Systems (EVEMS), ensuring smooth charging processes for residents while optimizing energy consumption and averting system overloads during peak usage periods.


Let’s explore why EVEMS are indispensable for MURBs, especially those striving to future-proof their infrastructure and meet the increasing needs of residents transitioning to electric vehicles. These systems play a pivotal role in balancing power distribution and mitigating grid strain, thereby crucially supporting the transition to electric mobility while maintaining building infrastructure integrity.


What is an EV energy management system, and why do MURBs require them?


Imagine arriving at your apartment complex after a long day, plugging in your electric vehicle (EV), and heading inside, confident that your car will be fully charged for tomorrow's adventures. Thanks to EV Energy Management Systems (EVEMS), this process is seamless.


With EVEMS, residents can plug in anytime, and load sensing technology intelligently distributes power among multiple chargers, preventing system overloads. This technology constantly analyzes the building's energy demand and adjusts power allocation accordingly, ensuring smooth operation behind the scenes.


As the number of EV drivers increases, ensuring a seamless charging experience becomes paramount. In bustling apartment buildings, improper management could lead to power surges, blackouts, or high energy bills. An EVEMS steps in by balancing charging requirements, ensuring fair distribution without straining the grid.



Optimizing energy usage with VariableGrid's patented EV energy management system for high density buildings  


VariableGrid's patented EV Energy Management System (EVEMS) optimizes a building’s available energy for full electrification while ensuring equitable distribution to EV chargers. As EV numbers rise, efficient charging solutions become crucial for MURBs.


As a response to the unique needs of MURBs, we've designed the VarianPRO, an EVEMS specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of high-density residential buildings. The VarianPRO facilitates effortless transitions to full electrification without requiring expensive infrastructure upgrades. This not only cuts down installation expenses but also guarantees each vehicle receives the ideal charge.


The VarianPRO controller serves as the nerve center, monitoring energy consumption continuously. During peak demand times, such as when residents return home, the system reduces power allocated to EV charging, maintaining overall energy demand within capacity and averting disruptions. By analyzing overall energy demand and specific EV requirements, the system maximizes charging capacity without straining the electrical infrastructure.


The VarianPRO’s demand-response capabilities also prioritize charging during off-peak hours, leveraging time-of-use electricity pricing to save costs for building owners and residents.
