Electric Cars to Tell Grid When to Charge

Honda begins deliveries of the Fit EV, based on the gasoline-powered model, to Stanford University and the City of as a part of Honda’s Electric Demonstration Program.


Owners of electric and hybrid just want plug in and up without thinking, but growing of such vehicles could the aging U.S. power A new project looks to stave off by testing how cars and power can talk to figure out the best schedules.

Such tests would how Honda s 2013 Fit electric can delay or adjust charging based on their own battery and power grid conditions all within seconds by the vehicles intelligence. IBM s online cloud will help the cars with the U.S. power owned by the Pacific Gas and Electric according to an official announcement for April 12.

The novel concept is taking the vehicle data as battery s state of charge and data from PGE to create an charge schedule for the EV so we aren t the grid or inconveniencing the driver, Clay Luthy, IBM s global energy resource manager.

Because cars can plug in at spots, it s very difficult for companies to predict local And the loads can be considerable: One plug-in car at very fast rates can a grid load equivalent to houses, Luthy explained. s world will require power grids that can swarms of plug-in cars almost 3 million vehicles by 2017, according to a Pike report.

One click charging: IBM and Swiss provider, EKZ, demonstrate a app to charge electric vehicles In the pilot several fully cars were used. In the is a Renault Twingo.


Plug and play testing

IBM is working with Honda to that its cloud-based system can to the Honda Fit cars for the first of upcoming tests. That IBM the brain in the cloud for this Luthy said.

We re using a pool of live vehicles by real people in a real Luthy, IBM s global distributed resource leader, told To support that, we re using data to test out scenarios larger vehicle counts.

wants to ensure that the new of its new plug-in cars have a experience charging up. Similarly, PGE to make sure its California is ready to serve drivers interrupting electricity service for and businesses.

By updating charging patterns for vehicles. we have the ability, if to shift demand to non-peak to ensure the reliability of the grid, Zambrano, senior director for products for PGE, said in a
