Nova Scotia Power receives funding for EV smart grid-integrated system

HALIFAX, NS — Nova Scotia Power is receiving over $1.1 million from the Government of Canada to help establish cost-effective energy solutions for an electric vehicle (EV) smart grid–integrated system.

The pilot project will demonstrate and assess smart charging EV solutions and technologies for the potential to make more efficient use of renewable power sources and reduce the demand on current electricity infrastructure, such as power lines, states a release.

The technologies will enable EVs to store and discharge electricity during peak times to ease pressure on the grid. The project will recruit up to 200 participants and will be funded through the Natural Resources Canada’s Green Infrastructure – Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration program, a federal program that aims to accelerate the deployment and market entry of next-generation clean energy infrastructure.
