Revel Partners with Logical Buildings to Support Cleaner Grid

Brooklyn-based Revel, which provides charging infrastructure and shared electric vehicle fleets, is partnering with Logical Buildings’ GridRewards, a virtual power plant software, to dynamically adjust the charging schedule of its electric moped fleet to enhance the resilience of New York City’s electric grid while also supporting a cleaner grid.

“As we continue to expand our electric mobility products, we plan to be an asset to the grid rather than a liability,” said Paul Suhey, Revel COO and co-founder. “Our EV infrastructure and charging operations can play a major role in helping NYC transition to a cleaner electric grid.” 

When New York City experienced a severe heat wave the week of June 28, Revel shifted the timing of its charging sessions and avoided the peak usage hours when electricity is dirtiest and most expensive. Revel says its actions were akin to powering 100 homes with carbon-free energy.
