NSF funds vehicle-to-grid project

The National Science Foundation has awarded $2 million to University of Michigan researchers to design a system to tie electric vehicles into the electric power grid.

The idea is to develop a framework for electric vehicles to plug into the grid to recharge and for the grid to use the plugged in vehicles' batteries for load balancing.

The researchers will also generalize the vehicle-to-grid research to understand the interactions between infrastructures and multifunction devices.

The project is led by Jeffrey Stein, Gregory Keoleian, Huei Peng and Zoran Filipi.
