Document Description
The team will demonstrate and evaluate the performance of a mixed fleet of 6 bi-directional plug-in hybrid electric vehicle vans and approx 34 uni-directional plug in electric vehicle sedans, as well as the 30 charging stations associated with the fleet. These resources will facilitate providing aggregated demand management for the base and simulated participation in current retail and wholesale demand response programs. This effort will allow the project stream to demonstrate and study the performance of the resource in participating in both current and proposed program and configurations. Each flexible load function will be demonstrated and tested for periods of 1-3 months. Flexible load applications will include demand management, demand response, and frequency regulation for which the team will leverage automatic generation control signals collected at LA AFB for their DOD vehicle to grid project.

Reasons for Exemption
The project has no possibility of significantly affecting the environment b/c it will take place on an existing military base, an existing facility and involves the procurement of environmentally friendly electric vehicles and associated equipment as well as enhancement of existing base energy resource capabilities to demonstrate vehicle grid integration technologies. The project team will demonstrate and evaluate performance of a mixed fleet of 6 bi-directional plug-in hybrid electric vans and approx 34 electric sedans, as well as the 30 charging stations associated with the fleet. The charging stations, as limited new construction will facilitate the project's goals of providing aggregated demand management and simulated participation in current retail and wholesale demand response programs.
