California E-Bus to Grid Integration Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
E-Buses have the technical and economic potential to rapidly displace diesel and CNG transit buses given on current replacement cycles. Buses are being deployed with onboard telematics to understand the vehicle's operating health and parameters, and high-power wireless inductive charging is now a viable solution for in-route charging. Together, these technologies help overcome key adoption barriers, integrating them with analytics and distributed energy resource (DER) management platforms can unlock even greater value. Manufacturers are acutely aware of this opportunity, as evidenced by many medium- and heavy-duty (MD/HD) vehicles being factory-configured for SC and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) operation.
