How Electric Vehicle Charging Systems are Accelerating the Clean Energy Revolution

At the start of December 2020, the City of Boulder, Colorado, formed a partnership with Fermata Energy—a leader in proven Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) systems who develops patented technology to integrate EVs with buildings and the electricity grid—to conduct an innovative pilot test at the North Boulder Recreation Center, examining Fermata’s ability to reduce the city’s building energy costs. The city and Fermata have installed an electric vehicle (EV) charging station that has a two-way electricity function, i.e., from the building to the car and from the car back to the building. This, also known as vehicle-to-building (V2B) technology, gives the city new ways to manage its energy load, possibly leading to some energy cost savings.
