Californian Electric Vehicle Smart Grid Demonstration Project Studies EV Usage

An infrastructure project studying smart grids named “Living Laboratory” is underway at the University of Southern California and Mitsubishi is involved with its i-MiEV EV.

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. is supporting the University of Southern California (USC) and the institution’s Viterbi School of Engineering as it develops a special campus-wide Smart Grid “Living Laboratory” project including the use of Mitsubishi’s diminutive electric vehicles.

The company says the Mitsubishi Motors/USC Electric Vehicle Smart Grid Demonstration Project will work to further develop and improve virtually all phases of electric vehicle infrastructure to accommodate their widespread usage in the future.

This USC Smart Grid Living Laboratory program will simulate a city with a population between 50,000 to 60,000 citizens, tourists, visitors and two hospitals as they document their experiences operating a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) under a wide range of conditions and simulations over a period of two years.

“Mitsubishi Motors is proud to offer our support to the USC Smart Grid Living Laboratory program,” said Yoichi Yokozawa, President & CEO of Mitsubishi Motors North America. “This project will help cities of all sizes develop a very cost-effective electric vehicle infrastructure game plan for drivers of 100 percent electric-powered vehicles including the Mitsubishi i-MiEV.”

Mitsubishi Motors says it will be providing a total of twelve Mitsubishi i-MiEV vehicles, several Level 2 EVSE charging systems to the Smart Grid program, and will consult with the university throughout the course of the research program.
