Renault and EDF strengthened their collaboration on zero-emission electric vehicles with an agreement on power line communication (PLC) enabling communication between charging terminals and electric vehicles.
This EDF-developed technology enables the secure exchange of data between charging terminal and the vehicle, including vehicle identification and billing details. Renault will carry out integration tests of this system with its future vehicles.
The two describe this as a concrete step forward that will contribute to the development of the electric vehicle market in France.
The two companies originally signed an agreement to partner on the development of electric vehicles in October 2008.
