AI-powered algorithms could help develop a greener grid and accelerate the transition to EVs

Today, renewables generate more and more of the electrons that positively impact our lives. Our shift away from fossil fuels in favor of zero-emission solar or wind power is necessary to fight the impact of climate change. But change fosters its own set of challenges. One is the intermittent nature of solar and wind power, which, combined with an absence of reliable energy storage solutions, means electricity stops flowing when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow.

And so, as electricity powers more aspects of our daily lives – widespread electrification will increase total U.S. power consumption by as much as 38% by 2050 ­– so does the need to optimize our grid so that it can efficiently accompany our shift to renewables.

To meet this challenge, PassKey, a U.S.-based energy transition business of SK E&S, has powered Energy Storage Solutions (ESS) with AI algorithms. The AI ensures that loads of solar and wind-powered electricity reliably and efficiently reach consumers without building costly new transmission lines.

As more U.S. drivers go electric, PassKey’s power solutions will help ensure electricity can seamlessly support all aspects of our daily lives, including recharging EVs.

SK is committed to reducing carbon emissions by 200 million in 2030. SK E&S’s PassKey will help meet this ambition by scaling innovations that improve the efficiency of EVs without stressing our existing energy grid.
