Mobi unveils vehicle grid integration standard

A working group chaired by Honda and General Motors has launched a standard incorporating blockchain technology into a decentralised vehicle charging system.

The Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative’s (Mobi) working group released its first technical design specification, which covers the system designs and data schemas – how data is organised – required for use cases relating to Vehicle to Grid (V2G) integration and Peer to Peer (P2P) applications.

Mobi says the Electric Vehicle Grid Integration (EVGI) standard ensures data attributes and functionalities of each use case are available for organisations to utilise in creating their own applications.

Mobi founder Tram Vo believes the standard will help companies on all sides of the electric vehicle (EV) and charging community.
