Nuvve joins four other companies as the newest cohort in the San Diego International Airport’s Innovation Lab.
“The Lab was launched to reduce barriers for innovators to break into the aviation industry. Its goals are to develop concepts that can enhance the passenger experience, improve operational efficiency, increase revenues and/or decrease costs.”
Nuvve will be setting up plans to test both unidirectional (V1G) electric vehicle (EV) charging for customer parking and bidirectional vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging for airport operations vehicles. These charging stations will be connected to Nuvve’s GIVe software platform to manage the charge and discharge of the vehicle batteries. The goal of the test is to determine the value of V2G at an airport and discover best use cases.
