Omnidian Partners with National Grid on Early-Stage EV Charger Reliability Research

Omnidian and National Grid recently launched a pilot program to see if Omnidian could improve the performance of National Grid’s employee EV charging stations. In order to detect when the product was not performing, the company used the stations’ reporting capabilities to put together different alerts — and ultimately, exposed issues that were artificially limiting the amount of power that the chargers dispensed.

“Omnidian was able to come up with several alerts and metrics that I really hadn’t imagined. We were able to uncover even more diagnostic and performance information about these chargers than I thought possible and in much greater detail than available from the manufacturer.” – Jake Kailey, Nat Grid

Editor’s Note: Omnidian does not currently support EV charging stations, but is working with leading national solar companies on metrics to assess and support the rollout of EV stations nationwide.
