Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are advancing technologies to enable widespread adoption of Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles, including development of the Grid Friendly™ Charger Controller that automatically recharges electric vehicles during times of least cost to the consumer. The Grid Friendly™ Charger Controller receives price signals from the grid operator to develop an optimal charging schedule that reduces the cost of charging. It also senses conditions on the grid and regulates the charging current in accordance with grid needs. The Grid Friendly™ Charger Controller also can assist in integrating renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar by compensating for the variability of their production.
