The California Energy Commission has awarded a $1.5 million grant to the CSE to lead development of an advanced management platform for integrating electric vehicle (EV) charging with utility-scale energy systems.

CSE will work closely with KnGrid, a leader in vehicle-grid communications, to create a standardized platform that optimizes charging benefits for both grid operators and vehicle owners. It will be the first data platform to employ the international ISO/IEC 15118 standard for flexibly managing vehicle charging with data from the power grid.
