California Energy Commission staff to hold Vehicle-Grid Integration Roadmap stakeholder workshop

The staff of the California Energy Commission will conduct a workshop to gather input from stakeholders on a draft outline of a Vehicle-Grid Integration Roadmap document on 8 October in Sacramento, California.

In March 2012, California Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order directing state government to help accelerate the market for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) in California. Executive Order B-16-2012 establishes milestones on a path toward 1.5 million ZEVs in California by the year 2025. The 2013 ZEV Action Plan is the product of an interagency working group led by the Governor’s Office that includes the California Energy Commission and several other state agencies and associated entities. The Action Plan identifies specific strategies and actions that state agencies will take to meet the milestones of the executive order.

As part of the 2013 ZEV Action Plan, the Energy Commission and the California Independent System Operator (California ISO) seek to develop a roadmap to commercialize vehicle-grid integration services provided by Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) batteries. Vehicle-grid integration services involve a suite of managed and smart PEV charging capabilities, including one-way or two-way charging.

In October 2012 and February 2013, the California ISO administered two workshops to solicit feedback from stakeholders for the creation of a Vehicle-Grid Integration Roadmap. In June 2013, the Energy Commission executed a work authorization with DNV KEMA (KEMA, Inc.) to support the completion of the roadmap.

The Energy Commission is hosting this workshop to:

  • gather updates since the previous workshop at the California ISO;

  • request input on barriers, research needs, and related activities; and

  • solicit stakeholder feedback with regard to a draft vehicle-grid integration roadmap outline.
