Coulomb Technologies and V2Green Partner for Plug-In Vehicles

August 01, 2008

SAN JOSE, CA – Coulomb Technologies and V2Green have formed a technology and marketing partnership to create an intelligent charging infrastructure for plug-in vehicles. Coulomb's Smartlet Charging Stations and Communications Network provide easy-to-use charging stations, delivering bi-directional energy metering and user authentication.

V2Green's smart grid technology establishes two-way communication between plug-in vehicles and the grid, allowing utilities to control charging behavior in real-time, within parameters set by vehicle owners, according to www.businesswire.com.

"The wide-scale adoption of plug-in vehicles requires both a public charging infrastructure and charging management solutions that allow the grid to support added load," said John Clark, president and CEO of V2Green. "By combining the strengths of our technologies, Coulomb and V2Green will help ensure the successful commercial introduction of plug-in vehicles."

The Coulomb-V2Green partnership will involve development of an open Application Programming Interface (API), interoperability testing and joint marketing.
