Optimized Energy Transfer programs are designed to incentivize customers whom are willing to give the energy provider control over their load. More specifically these programs allow energy providers to reduce or interrupt customer loads during critical grid events. The idea is that the energy provider based on the grid event can actively manage the charging load by either reducing or interrupting it. In either case, the active management will support turn off those who have higher state of charge while only reducing the charge rate of those that have lower state of charge. Usually, the energy provider offers a vast array of options with programs varying in the quantity of events and length of reduction or interruption periods. These include Regulation Services and taking advantage of Spinning Reserves.
