MOEV, Gardena Transit to Enable Electrification of Fleets

Artificial Intelligence software will manage battery electric bus power

MOEV is implementing a system that automatically manages the recharging of battery electric buses at the City of Gardena’s GTrans to minimize the electric bill, improve operational efficiency, reduce operator and driver stress, and extend the buses’ battery life. 

 

The system is backed by a $3.3 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC).

Additionally, the system will maximize the use of energy from solar panels at the transit agency and helps improve grid resilience.

 

“GTrans is excited to work with MOEV as we plan to convert our entire 58-bus fleet to zero-emission buses by 2035,” said Ernie Crespo, MOEV’s partner and GTrans’ director of transportation. “We look forward to integrating this smart technology into our system and are thankful for this investment by the CEC.”

Paul Glenney joins MOEV Advisory Board

MOEV is pleased to announce that Paul Glenney has joined our Advisory Board

Paul was the CEO of Hubject Inc. for over three years, the North American division of the most widely adopted interoperability and Plug&Charge software ecosystems for electric vehicle charging networks in the world. As an early participant in the electric vehicle industry, Glenney has been at the forefront of electric vehicles since the launch of Nissan LEAF and the BMW ActiveE.  Playing key roles at Faraday Future, NRG EVgo and AeroVironment, Glenney has led teams and projects focused on providing charging infrastructure and supporting programs needed for electric vehicle adoption resulting in well over 1,000 L2 and DCFC installations in North America.  Combined with Glenney’s experience in renewable energy technologies such as solar, wave, tidal and small wind, as well as micro-grids and energy storage, Glenney has a deep understanding of the relationship between eMobility, DERs, utilities and government.

MOEV Comments on Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero-Emission Vehicles & Infrastructure to CEC

April 24, 2020
California Energy Commission
Docket 19-ERDD-01
1516 Ninth Street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Dear California Energy Commissioner and Staff,

MOEV is a Los Angles based start up company applying Artificial Intelligence to challenges of smart charging of electric vehicles, including medium and heavy duty fleet vehicles. We have several pilot installations, including combined workplace and fleet charging at La Kretz Innovation Campus in Los Angeles, where our technology has been piloted and tested.

Our system includes reduced CAPEX and OPEX benefits for site hosts providing fleet charging, as well as the potential for grid service via peak shaving, time shifting of load, and demand response.

We applaud the CEC for initiating infrastructure to enable the shifting of our medium and heavy duty fleets from internal combustion vehicles to electric. We hope that resulting funding opportunities will advance the technology available for such fleet electrification as well as supporting local companies with valuable technologies in the space to export such solutions, in keeping with California’s reputation as a leader in clean energy technologies.

We would like to see several points emphasized in such funding opportunities:

1) Permit smaller fleets to participate, as advanced technologies have more risk and it is a challenge to find fleet operators who will accept that risk for larger 100 heavy duty vehicle fleets. This change makes the program more likely to result in innovative solutions.

2) Add innovation as a scoring category, again with the goal of having California innovate in the space and establish commercial leadership.

3) Add ease of management and lowering of needs for grid capacity as well as efficient management of the site host charging facility through smart power management systems, thus addressing issues such as demand charge mitigation or DER integration – so that the total cost of ownership of a fleet is lowered, while also reducing the burden on the grid.

4) Require funded solutions to show grid support, either in peak load, renewable integration including load shifting, and power quality. This ensures that current investments and funded demonstrations are not simply short term fixes but establish a foundation of smart grid support and evolution as fleet
electrification scales up in the state.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to contribute our thoughts.

Regards,

Michael Boehm

VP Business,
MOEV, Inc.
