It hopes to attract fleet customers who can sell energy back to grid.
It's setting up a wireless network in big cities, on highways
DOE funds Blue Bird's electric bus. Quebec and California use cap-and-trade to fund eLion.
Nissan and ENEL are partnering on a vehicle-to-grid trial with Leaf EVs saving power to use during peak hours.
EV advocate says gas-powered vehicles depreciate a lot faster than plug-in vehicle batteries.
For the better part of seven decades, the ordinary American school bus has remained exactly the same. Someday soon, it could undergo a radical change.
Boulder Electric Vehicle is gradually taking demonstrations of its vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology westward, spreading the gospel of an electric truck that can power itself while providing about 60 kilowatts worth of juice for a building or another outside source.
After working with Coritech Services on a bi-directional DC fast charging solution, Boulder Electric Vehicle says it's now the first-ever electric truckmaker to successfully implement Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) charging. The two companies displayed an electric flatbed utility truck equipped with a Tesla-sized 72-kWh lithium battery pack and a Coritech 60-kW DC Jon LeSage
Electric vehicles camped in parking spaces will be an ideal vehicle-to-grid energy source for buildings equipped with energy management systems. A new report from Navigant Research forecasts that nearly 200,000
Consider this a cart-pulls-horse scenario.
Turns out, the Enron scandal will end up benefiting electric cars.
V2G – vehicle-to-grid technology – could be a hugely important step in the upcoming shift from a transportation industry dominated by petroleum to one dominated by things that are not petroleum. V2G is the technology behind the idea of a "cashback car," for example, but it's still a long way from being available. Sure, there are Sebastian Blanco
The "cashback car" is one step closer to reality.
It's no secret that EVs are cheaper to drive per mile than gas vehicles. If you're driving a petrol-powered car, you're paying more for your energy than the guy next to you in a Nissan Leaf. But, EVs could also house a golden goose that can actually make money for their owners.
AC Propulsion, a global company involved in electric drive design, development and manufacturing, has delivered a battery-powered eBox to the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) for tests that evaluate vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies. The research aims to advance the integration of electric vehicles with Denmark's grid.
Fans of the normal-car-as-EV style of the Coda Sedan, you've been warned. What we have here is the AirRay, a totally unusual vehicle that (theoretically, at least) uses solar, wind and plug-in power to decrease gasoline consumption. It's also a little bit crazy.
Madison, Wisconsin is a fairly typical college town, a place with a fairly substantial population of people with progressive attitudes on many issues. That means it has more people who ride bikes, take the bus, walk and drive hybrids than some other surrounding areas. It's also easier to find plug-in vehicles in places like Madison than elsewhere. Madison Gas and Electric can see the writing on the wall and wants to be ready for the transition to electrification.
