The California E-Bus to Grid Integration Project engaged the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, based in Lancaster, California—the first transit authority in the nation to commit to a 100 percent all-electric bus fleet—to achieve developing an operator training model that demonstrates the impact of driver behavior on energy efficiency; and developing a Vehicle-to-Grid integration model that identifies cost savings opportunities from managed charging and electric fleet participation in wholesale energy markets. This report highlights the conclusions and recommendations of this multi-year effort funded by the California Energy Commission to develop best practices in electric fleet management.
The project developer and prime contractor on the California E-Bus to Grid Integration Project was the Zero Net Energy Alliance. Key partners included the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, Olivine, Energy Solutions, TAPTCO, SolutionLab, ASWB Engineering, Opinion Dynamics, and Prospect Silicon Valley.
