UD to partner with NRG Energy to develop electric vehicle-to-grid technology

NRG Energy, Inc. is partnering with the University of Delaware to take electric vehicles to the next level with eV2g, a company commercializing new technology that will enable electric vehicle owners to sell electric storage services from the batteries of parked electric vehicles to help stabilize the electricity grid. Pioneered by UD's Willett Kempton, professor in the School of Marine Science and Policy and director of the Center for Carbon-free Power Integration, this patented leading-edge vehicle-to-grid technology has garnered worldwide attention and holds promise to transform the future of the electricity supply.
