Department of Energy Announces First of Its Kind Collaboration to Accelerate “Vehicle-to-Everything” Technologies
The U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) and partners today announced the Vehicle to Everything (V2X) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will bring together cutting-edge resources from DOE, DOE national labs, state and local governments, utilities, and private entities to evaluate technical and economic feasibility as we integrate bidirectional charging into energy infrastructure. The MOU will also advance cybersecurity as a core component of V2X charging infrastructure.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) conservatively estimates that 130 million electric vehicles (EVs) will be on the road globally by 2030. As the number of EVs grows and especially as larger trucks and buses electrify with larger batteries, there will be opportunities to use those batteries to also support the grid.
