Remote Access Workshop
California Energy Commission (CEC) staff will host a remote-access scoping workshop to solicit feedback on a draft concept for the Vehicle-Grid Innovation Lab (ViGIL).
Staff has released a “Draft Solicitation Concept” document, which details the concept under consideration for a competitive grant solicitation to be issued by the Clean Transportation Program.
The purpose of this solicitation is to fund the Vehicle-Grid Innovation Lab (ViGIL). ViGIL will address testing, certification, data, and technology gaps for electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment, by offering funding to support the expansion of an existing EV charging testing facility within California and provide local, cost-effective, and convenient testing.
The workshop will be held remotely, consistent with Executive Orders N-25-20 and N-29-20 and the recommendations from the California Department of Public Health to encourage physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. The public can participate and observe the workshop consistent with the direction in these Executive Orders. Instructions for remote participation are below.
