Apr 22, 2022 | News

“I don’t know a business that’s better prepared. In many cases we see these [vehicles] as moving utilities.”

COMMERCE, Calif., April 20, 2022 – This week, Zeem signed on to the Vehicle to Everything (V2X) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which brings together leaders in clean transportation from state and local governments, utilities, and private entities. The event was hosted at IBEW/NECA’s Net Zero/Zero Emissions Electric Training Institute in Commerce, CA.

Bidirectional plug-in electric vehicles can serve both as a clean transportation option for fleets and as an energy storage asset that can send power to critical loads (such as buildings or the grid) when needed. V2X has immense potential to improve grid resiliency, accelerate emission reductions, and create new revenue opportunities.

“We’re believers in bidirectional technology. V2G is just in its earliest stages.” Says Paul Gioupis, Zeem Solutions’ CEO.

With this MOU in place, Zeem is confident that the collaboration and partnerships forged will overcome regulatory and technological limitations that have slowed progress in the V2X field in the past. Zeem’s business, based on ownership of medium- and heavy-duty zero emission vehicles and ownership and operation of chargers, makes our depots a perfect fit for V2X projects.

“I don’t know a business that’s better prepared,” Paul says. “In many cases we see these [vehicles] as moving utilities.”

Participants in the V2X MOU include the United States Department of Energy’s Offices of Vehicle Technologies, Electricity, Technology Transitions, and Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response, as well as The California Energy Commission, The California Public Utilities Commission, The City of Lancaster and City of Lancaster Community Choice Aggregator, The City of Los Angeles, Fermata Energy, First Student, Ford Motor Company, General Motors LLC, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers– Chapter 11, Lion Electric Inc., Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Lucid Group, Inc. (Lucid Motors), the National Electrical Contractors Association – Los Angeles, Nissan, Nuvve Holding Corp., Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Rhombus, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, and Zeem Solutions.
