About REV Technologies

REV is developing technologies that lie at the intersection of the EV and energy industries. The company's technologies allow electric vehicles to act as mobile generators that power equipment, buildings and the utility grid itself. While plugged in, electric cars have the potential to be a vast network of energy storage reservoirs for the grid. REV's technologies creates the potential for widescale renewable power adoption, decreasing capital upgrades and increasing efficiency gains system-wide.

REV Technologies Inc. is chosen by SAIC to supply vehicle-to-grid technologies for TARDEC project

Oct 26, 2011

REV Technologies Inc. is chosen by SAIC to supply vehicle-to-grid technologies for TARDEC project 26 October 2011 Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has selected REV Technologies Inc. to provide EV conversion technology and integrated vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-site (V2S) networking solutions under the Aloha Micro Grid program for the U.S. Army’s Tank and Automobile Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). In the third contract awarded to REV by TARDEC, REV is to supply the US Army with two more REV 300ACX V2G-capable electric vehicles for the project, bringing the total to 6. These vehicles all have built-in connectivity to REV’s AutoGrid Network. The REV vehicles act as dynamic energy storage devices on the power grid, together acting as an extension of the power plant whenever they are plugged in. With REV’s AutoGrid connected to TARDEC’s military micro-grid, the network will demonstrate and validate various scenarios for energy efficiency including frequency regulation, spinning reserves, load shedding, peak shaving, and harnessing wind and solar energy. Our unique capabilities in both electric vehicles and energy network technology help enable vehicle-to-grid. Together with SAIC we can meet the requirements that the Department of Defense has to increase national security by creating a virtual power plant from as many as 200,000 non-tactical electric vehicles by 2015. So demand is there, and we’re prepared to scale quickly. —Jay Giraud, founder and CEO of REV REV says that its AutoGrid can offer flexibility, prediction and control for micro-grids, utilities and grid operators alike. It combines cloud-based energy control applications that talk to onboard vehicle systems to assess the battery charge levels and driver requirements and then control charging and discharging accordingly. TARDEC will evaluate how the AutoGrid’s algorithms predict and optimize the excess capacity available from a fleet of electric vehicles and how it dispatches this excess power while managing each vehicle’s driving needs in real-time.
