GM enabling solar powered car charging with smart API s in Volt

GM and TimberRock are developing for an integrated solar power with grid energy and electric car charging, enabling grid goodness.

Electric are often pictured in front of turbines or solar panels, we want clean fuel for our cars. GM’s OnStar just announced a partnership TimberRock that could this more of a reality, tying solar panels, energy storage systems, and car charging.

It is a fact that most comes from burning fuels, and it therefore leaves the car open to the coal powered car some like to toss But if you can clearly tie a renewable clean source, like solar directly to charging an electric it will be absolutely clear the for that car will be 100% In addition there’s the opportunity to revenue by selling any excess power to the grid, or performing grid services with a grid energy storage

OnStar first announced in the availability of programming API’s and access to the Chevy Volt to developing Smart Grid for the Volt. The API’s give developers the ability to integrate the or other electric cars the Chevy Spark EV) with Grid technologies. “At OnStar, we that innovation is fostered through openness and transparency,” Nick Pudar, OnStar president of planning and business “The benefit of the approach putting forth here is development of applications to best the needs of our customers.”

Those capabilities include:- response – Allows an electric car to, charging, respond to Demand signals from the Grid to the charge rate up or down; (TOU) rates – OnStar can dynamic TOU pricing from and notify Volt owners of the plan offers via email. data – OnStar also and receives EV data that utility providers without to interface with the vehicle’s vehicle supply equipment. services – This solution electric service providers to the charging of participating vehicles in a geographic area, with consent.

This includes the ability to charging on a large amount of EVs

TimberRock is looking to monitor the of its solar charging stations, how stored energy is available and it can sell energy back to the to help meet peak OnStar has given TimberRock to this solution so that it can stop and modulate the amount of going to a particular Volt in with energy need.

“The future of electric charging will be a marriage of energy and battery storage as we to address the intermittency of renewable and wind power,” said Rob General Motors’ manager of energy. “This project GM’s goal of using all of the charging equation: electric solar power, and battery

“We have given TimberRock the to use Demand Response to efficiently the charging of their fleet of said Paul Pebbles, GM manager, Smart Grid and EV “This is the first time a of Demand Response is being beyond lab or university studies.”
