Zigbee Alliance and SAE International Accelerate Electric Vehicle Connection to the Smart Grid

Liaison agreement focuses on ZigBee Smart Energy meeting automaker and utility needs

SAN RAMON, Calif. Feb. 2, 2011

ZigBee Smart Energy is the market leading home area network and advanced metering infrastructure standard for the Smart Grid.  The collaboration recognizes the important role SAE International plays as the focal point for integrating automobile communication with emerging energy management requirements. Using ZigBee Smart Energy to define how PEVs and the grid interact, whether at the consumer’s home or at a remote location, will be one of the goals the two groups address.  Ultimately, this initiative will provide future PEV drivers with the real-time information needed to control their transportation energy use, manage their charging costs and receive utility incentives for participating in PEV programs.  It also provides the essential control functions necessary to safely manage the charging of PEVs while maintaining grid integrity.

Work between the groups is already underway with completion targeted for next year when ZigBee Smart Energy version 2.0 is scheduled for completion. SAE International joins ZigBee Smart Energy development efforts led by some of the largest utilities, suppliers and technology companies in the world.
