Joint Agency Workshop on VGI Communications Standards

CPUC Energy Division staff along with California Energy Commission (CEC), California Air Resources Board (CARB), California Independent System Operator (California ISO), and other organizations will discuss the consideration of communication standards for Vehicle-Grid Integration related to transportation electrification.


A September 14, 2016 Assigned Commissioner Ruling in R.13-11-007, which was subsequently ratified by D.16-11-005, requires that the forthcoming IOU transportation electrification applications address how their programs will comply with the ISO/IEC 15118 Standard that is described in the guidance ruling. Alternatively, the utilities must provide justification on why alternative approaches sufficiently meet code requirements and policy objectives. The Ruling also stated that “for the Commission to decide whether statewide communication standards need to be adopted, the parties to these TE applications should be prepared to provide testimony to support or oppose adopting such a standard.”
