The California Energy Commission (CEC) and partners hosted the 2019 Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Symposium today at the Sacramento Convention Center.
The Symposium is showcasing EPIC projects ranging from energy efficiency to smart grid technologies. EPIC itself is an energy innovation funding program for which Nuvve is a recipient of a grant to demonstrate the real-world benefits of advanced vehicle grid integration (VGI) applications for electric vehicles (EVs).
Called the INVENT project (Intelligent Electric Vehicle Integration), Nuvve is deploying 50+ electric vehicles across the state of California to prove that EV owners can share their batteries while charging to provide energy back to the grid. The project is underway with several V2G-enabled EVs at the University of California San Diego campus.
Nuvve CEO, Gregory Poilasne, was a speaker at the event, and Nuvve’s video showcasing the INVENT project was selected as a EPIC Awardee.
The INVENT project also won the ESNA 2018 Innovation Award. Learn more about INVENT here.
