      CPUC sued for granting monopoly to NRG for vehicle-to-grid infrastructure and EV charging stations

      ECOtality alleges that in "the agreement, which was intended to settle NRG's role in overcharging California energy ratepayers $940 million during the 2000-2001 energy crisis ..., the PUC intervened outside of its authority in the private marketplace by endorsing one of multiple competitors, and indeed the most powerful, thereby handing the company a monopoly over the nascent [EV charger stations] market in California."

    3. Echelon's 'Trojan Horse' strategy to penetrate smart grid markets in China, Brazil, etc.

      Echelon's 'Trojan Horse' strategy to penetrate smart grid markets in China, Brazil, etc.

      These countries' incumbent meter manufacturers want to own future smart meter markets, and governments often impose local manufacturing mandates.  Echelon's idea is to give regional meter manufacturers a tool to hook their smart meters to devices like solar panel and battery inverters, grid sensors, plug-in vehicle chargers and other grid devices, all over Echelon’s grid networking and software infrastructure.

    6. Spider9 to “manage, not monitor” batteries at the cell level

      Spider9 to “manage, not monitor” batteries at the cell level

      Grid-storage batteries contain 100's or 1000's of electrochemical cells that interact in hard-to-predict ways. Most of today’s BMS systems are limited to “pack-down” operations to shut down packs that whose temperature or voltage is a problem, Spider9’s founder said.  Spider9 can isolate and reconfigure a battery pack on the fly, using “IP about how you isolate a switch without on-loading the contacts, and then re-switch the load point on,” he said.
