As a rule, utilities nor automotive standards tend to win many points for We ve written before about and utilities ratcheting up efforts to out standards for how plug-in vehicles interact with the grid. So far ve stopped short of forming an standards movement like the that have formed in the IT and industries.

But the pressure is on for standards to be put in place of the emergence of plug-in vehicles for the mass market in the next few especially in California, which likely be an early test

That was one of the messages driven this week at a California Utilities Commission workshop on grid standards. Adding to the of developing rules for a new territory the of vehicles and the electric grid is the that state utility are in many ways still out their role in a nascent that will be shaped in part by protocols and standards nationwide groups like the of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Fire Protection Association, writes wiring and electric

As Saul Zambrano, director of the Air Transportation program for utility noted in his presentation at one of the CPUC on Wednesday:

Beginning as early as 2010, is likely to be a major focus of mass marketing of a new generation of vehicles Now is the time for the Commission, utility customers, auto vendors and other stakeholders to overall policies, rates, and in the electric sector to ensure electric infrastructure and customer needed to support the market of electric vehicles.

Electric infrastructure startup Better whose Jason Wolf at this week s workshop, has a idea of how it would like the Commission s role to take as explained in a letter submitted this month in response to a white paper on opportunities and for EVs in California (you can read the comments from Better and other groups here ). In its comments, Better Place commissioners to consider a green EV which would provide incentives for EV customers that use generated [with] renewable to power their vehicles, and not charging infrastructure rebates. Place proposes a statewide program for private investments in infrastructure similar to incentive for energy-efficient appliances.

On the standards side, Better wants the CPUC or the California Commission (another state to set up a statewide approval process for EV modeled after the requirements by the San Francisco government (so that a like Better Place won t to draft a new proposal for every and updates to state building

Better Place writes the costs for installing charge for electric vehicles in parking could be significantly reduced if were required to install the or at least the electrical capacity, at the of construction or renovation. It probably t be the CPUC s job to enact these but Better Place is calling for the to help form a working to determine a sensible set of reforms and their costs to the relevant

Other companies have submitted policy ideas: point maker Coulomb wants to see a a framework for new billing in recognition of the mobile customer whom the serving utility has no and billing relationship. And southern utility San Diego Gas Electric has partnered with the Renault-Nissan to trial electric vehicles and infrastructure ) urges commissioners to, other things, consider utilities to consider authorizing to invest in, coordinate and deploy infrastructure in advance of the market to adoption of EVs.

The Golden State s electric may be among the first to deal plug-in vehicles in large and all the reliability issues that can with them. An active about how to manage this is already under way, and we ll be closely as it unfolds. We re not the only As Andy Frank, a UC Davis professor and the founder and chief officer of Efficient Drivetrains. on a panel at this week s What we re doing here we re setting world standards.
