Nuvve Corporation has announced a number of strategic partnerships, pilot programs, and company milestones to advance vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology.
Nuvve Corporation is a San Diego-based green energy technology company that aims to lower the cost of electric vehicle ownership while supporting the integration of renewable energy sources, including solar and wind. The company’s proprietary vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology – Nuvve’s Grid Integrated Vehicle (GIVe™) platform – is refueling the next generation of electric vehicle fleets through cutting-edge, bi-directional charging solutions.
Nuvve’s technology helps bridge the gap between transportation and energy by providing storage for renewable energy, services to the grid operators, and optimization of EV charging on the grid. As Nuvve continues to lead the market in demonstrating the viability of V2G technology, the company recently announced the following partnerships and pilot programs:
• Strategic partnership with EDF: Nuvve recently entered into a strategic partnership in Europe with EDF Group, a key player in low carbon energy, in support of the company’s Electric Mobility Plan. As part of these efforts, Nuvve and EDF Group will develop a joint venture to further develop EV and V2G solutions for the European market and support the generation of CO2-free power and the advancement of new electricity applications.
• Smart charging pilot program with EDF Energy (EDFE): Serving as a first-step program of the EDF strategic partnership, Nuvve will be installing up to 1,500 of its V2G chargers configured with Nuvve’s Grid Integrated Platform (GIVe™) throughout the UK over the next several months. These chargers will support EDFE’s business customers and be used at its own work sites to provide additional energy storage capacity. The stored electricity will be made available for sale on the energy markets or for supporting grid flexibility at times of peak energy use.
• Expansion of the University of California San Diego’s Triton Rides service: Building upon its collaboration with UC San Diego for its INVENT V2G demonstration project, the university recently added an EV fleet (five cars total) to its Triton Rides program, which provides free nighttime shuttle service to all UC San Diego students, staff and faculty. These new EVs, provided by Nuvve, will take advantage of the company’s V2G bidirectional charging stations around UC San Diego’s campus and will provide grid services, helping to inform the INVENT project’s use case of campus fleet vehicles to optimize unused and renewable energy.
• Microgrid for Affordable and Sustainable Electricity in Remote Areas (MASERA) pilot project: A joint effort in Singapore between EDF, Enedis, and the Nanyang Technological University, this program will deploy a commercial offering, including Nuvve’s V2G software platform and bidirectional charging hardware, of an affordable and high-performance microgrid for isolated territories in Southeast Asia.
• V2G charging/discharging demonstrations in Japan: In collaboration with Aichi Prefecture,
Toyota Tsusho Corporation, and Chubu Electric Power Company, Nuvve will supply its V2G platform to initiate charging and discharging demonstrations with EV batteries and plug-in hybrid vehicles in order to survey the impact and potential for V2G systems on the power grid in Tokyo City, Japan.
Nuvve has also been recognized recently for its advancements in the V2G space by both Red Herring and Energy Storage North America (ESNA).
