    3. ARPA-E allocates $13M to SBIR & SBTT programs for stationary storage

      ARPA-E allocates $13M to SBIR & SBTT programs for stationary storage

      Approximately $13M will be made available for the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs, and focuses on five research areas. The two research areas for stationary energy storage include low-cost, grid-scale storage, particularly for electric distribution systems supporting the local penetration of electric vehicles with high-rate charging demands; and low-cost storage for consumer-side meter applications.

    5. IBM, Honda, and PG&E testing EV <=> Grid charging instructions

      IBM, Honda, and PG&E testing EV <=> Grid charging instructions

      IBM has teamed with Honda and Pacific Gas and Electric on a pilot project for communication between electric vehicles (EVs) and the power grid. This project will test an electric vehicle's ability to receive and respond to charge instructions based on the grid condition and the vehicle's battery state. With visibility into charging patterns, energy providers will have the ability to more effectively manage charging during peak hours.

      EV Grid founder explains Vehicle-to-Grid technology and business model

      For EV Grid, “the big commercialization opportunity,” (founder) Gage explained, is “vehicle-grid integration,” because “everybody knows if ten people on the block go out and buy a LEAF and they all plug it in at 6 p.m. when they get home, they’re going to have a problem.” Many see this as a liability, Gage said, “but if you manage it properly, it becomes an asset.”

    7. S&C Electric: How the grid is blocking EV adoption, and what to do about it

      S&C Electric: How the grid is blocking EV adoption, and what to do about it

      There’s no question that electric vehicles are a hot topic. They can potentially increase our energy independence while reducing our reliance on fossil fuel. Yet barriers are slowing adoption. We are all aware of common challenges such as cost, range, and the lack of charging infrastructure. But Michael Edmonds, the VP of Strategic Solutions for S&C Electric Company, says there is a "hidden" barrier -- the grid itself.

    8. GE, Nissan explore EVs for home energy storage

      GE, Nissan explore EVs for home energy storage

      On Friday, GE and Nissan signed a two-year research collaboration to speed up deployment of electric vehicles, an extension to an agreement announced last year ... The research will look at whether stored energy can automatically supply a house during peak times, when electricity rates are higher. GE and Nissan also said they will explore if solar panels can directly charge car batteries. Another area of research will model how large numbers of electric vehicles, which pull about as much power as a whole house, affects management of the grid for utilities.

      Rome Welcomes Toshiba for EV Charging Storage

      Italy is poised to welcome electric cars to the streets or Rome, according to Toshiba. Toshiba's Italian subsidiary Ansaldo Transmissione & Distribuzione S.p.A (Ansaldo T&D) won a contract to supply a smart grid distribution system to ACEA Distribuzione S.p.A (Gruppo ACEA), one of Italy’s leading public utilities. The system will include a solar power array and storage batteries, as well as a control unit and smart meters.

      GM OnStar Pilots Gathering EV Charging Data for Utilities Demand Planning

      Hundreds of regional utility employees will drive leased Chevrolet Volts as their everyday vehicle. Through the OnStar Advanced Telematics Operations Management System (ATOMS), a utility will gain insight into where and when EVs are charged and demand response, which allows the utility to reduce peak demand by shifting EV charging to non-peak hours.
