V2G, Robo Cabs, Eurabus, INN-BALANCE.

20m pounds for V2G: The British government reserves funds of 20m pounds for Vehicle-to-Grid research projects as it aims to create a smart grid while increasing the number of EVs at the same time. The tender is to open in due course with winners to be named by December for projects to start in early 2018. The fund will pay for feasibility studies, development of charging equipment and trials around the country, so expect energy companies, car makers and local authorities to compete.

Robo cabs made in Germany: Mercedes and Bosch affirm their cooperation and want to start testing autonomous electric taxis on German roads in less than twelve months. There will be a driver on board at the beginning but Bosch believes it will reach mass market adoption by 2022.

Bright numbers: Berlin-based busmaker Eurabus says it has crashed the threshold of 1,000 electric buses and written over 1,400 orders but not from local clients. Instead the light-weight Eurabus 3.0 is headed for Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and Mexico soon after the start of production at the year’s end. Kazakhstan alone is expecting 700 electric buses and Azerbaijan another 500 over the next three years. While Eurabus delivers ready-made buses at the moment, assembly plants will be set up in the countries of destination over time.

Robot traffic jam.

A robot in Russia reportedly “got loose” when a researcher forgot to properly shut a gate at a research facility. The robot, which was being taught to move independently through a space, wandered into a busy street and caused a traffic jam. The chase only ended, when its battery finally died.

V2G, Vector, Fasned, DC charging, West Norfolk.

V2G initiative: The University of California, San Diego, will introduce electric vehicles. The fleet consists of Nissan and Honda electric cars and will be charged and operated by EVgo. The firm also wants to test bi-directional charging and feed into UC San Diego’s advanced microgrid.

Vector shows progress in setting up a promised 35 EV rapid-charging stations in New Zealand. The first station that sports two fast-charging spots has been installed in Auckland and the company says another fifteen will be erected soon.
nzherald.co.nz

Longer and faster: Nissan’s new 30 kWh battery of the Leaf not only holds more power than the previous 24-kWh version but also charges faster, Fastned reveals after real-life testing. The quicker replenishing is probably due to the alternated cell chemistry.
insideevs.com, transportevolved.com

The faster the better: EV drivers prefer rapid-charging over Level 2 charging 12 to 1, a survey by NRG eVgo in the Bay area reveals. This means that in the long run, DC charging might be where the money is for infrastructure providers, while AC charging will likely remain free of charge.

200,000 pounds were invested in EV charging infrastructure, as British West Norfolk is now equipped with three stations. Each includes two rapid charging spots. The initiative is funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and a Nissan consortium.
