GM to Help With the Power Grid
The automaker unveiled a new business unit called GM Energy that houses EV-related products and services for residential and commercial customers. GM Energy is comprised of the new “Ultium Home” and “Ultium Commercial” lines, which share branding with the company’s signature battery platform, and it includes the preexisting “Ultium Charge” offering that aims to provide more seamless on-the-go charging experiences, which GM started in 2021.
“This all allows us to move into a new white space that’s being created by energy management,” Travis Hester, vice president of GM EV growth operations said. The availability of all GM Energy components is expected by the end of 2023, Hester said, but the initial rollout already started in August and will occur in stages.
