CEC funds UCSD for EV charging and microgrid project

by kwood on January 9, 2013

Today, the California Energy Commission approved an award to support UC San Diego’s growing microgrid and fund the integration of additional electric vehicle charging infrastructure on campus.

The campus will be hosting the largest and most diverse collection of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the nation, with charge for fleet, employee, and public use. San Diego County-based Alternative Energy Systems Consulting, Inc. will be working with AeroVironment and RWE to install smart Level 2 charging stations for fleet and employee use, as well as public DC fast chargers.  The new stations will bring the total on campus to more than 50. The stations will be a model of efficient charging integration with the campus’ award-winning microgrid.

UCSD’s microgrid serves as a model for integrating smart energy technologies in a flexible, cost effective, and environmentally friendly way.  The microgrid integrates solar, fuel-cell, and conventional generation, with advanced energy storage and demand management to meet campus energy needs at a lower cost and better environmental performance than standard sources of power. The $1.6 million dollar award by the Commission complements previous investments and awards that have helped the campus lower its energy bills by up to $800,000 per month. You can read more about UCSD’s efforts on the official CEC announcement.

UCSD operates one of the green university fleets in the nation, with more than half of its 800 vehicle fleet running on alternative fuels, such as compressed natural gas, biodiesel and electricity.

The Clean Cities Coalition is proud to work with UCSD in promoting clean energy technologies. Congratulations!

It is basically to convert the possibilities
to persistent business with good returns on investment options.
Your customers already have enough information coming
to them, so make your posts relevant so they stand out.
Cost – Social media marketing is extremely cost-effective when compared
to other marketing methods. Call your previous clients; reconnect with the people you met since the
beginning of the year. Singapore SEO advisor brings about new ways to establish this
methodology within the highest ways possible.
The first thing you want to do is figure out which social media tools work best.
The authority allows the activists to get some points and the protest ends.
They can propagate information by posting a comment on Facebook or
a tweet on Tweeter; this technique is more useful as when someone you know make a comment it won’t be considered Facebook Spam.
But, I can’t think of a more colossal waste of your
hard-earned profits than simply running ads with your logo on it.
You can give tweets ranging from business related
to even just acknowledging your fans.
