Nissan awarded Abhishek Dubey’s project titled, “Optimizing Vehicle Charging and Discharging for Reducing Building Grid Dependency.”

Dubey’s team is working with Nissan on designing online decision policies to optimize the charging and discharging rates of electric vehicles connected to buildings with the goal of reducing the overall price of electricity purchased from the main power grid. The system once complete will respond to dynamic changes in utility pricing signals and will ensure that all vehicles that are part of the deployment experiments will meet their requirements of expected charge level needed for completing their trips.
