UD Groups Working on Grid-Integrated Vehicles and Vehicle-to-Grid Power
Pictured below are the teams working on different aspects of GIV and V2G technology and policy:
Policy, Partnerships, System Analysis. Develop policies, write model legislation, work with legislators and advocates to enact law. Develop industrial and academic partners, work with partners to accomplish joint objectives.
Analyze operation of GIV vehicles and large-scale systems, including impact on ISOs and high-penetration renewables planning. Primarily located in the UD College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment.
