Vehicle-Grid Integration

The CPUC, in collaboration with other state agencies, is developing policies that support vehicle-grid integration (VGI). VGI helps align electric vehicle charging with the needs of the electric grid.  To do this, electric vehicles must have capabilities to manage charging or support two-way interaction between vehicles and the grid.

The CPUC is currently collaborating with other agencies to explore whether adopting one or more communications protocols is necessary to enable VGI.  Additional information is found on the VGI working group website.
