JRC and US increase cooperation on e-mobility and smart grids

19. December 2011

At the Transatlantic Economic Council meeting in Washington on 29 November 2011 the Director-General of the JRC, Dominique Ristori, signed a Letter of Intent for closer cooperation with the US Department of Energy (DoE) on e-mobility and smart grids.

The Letter of Intent creates the basis for the establishment of two Electric Vehicle and Smart Grid Interoperability centres, one at Argonne National Laboratories, in the US, and one at the JRC facilities in Ispra, Italy.

The twin centres will facilitate permanent contact between EU and US scientists, promoting a common approach between the two sides on the testing of relevant electric vehicle and smart grid equipment, and the fostering of global standards. They will address the interoperability issues between e-vehicles, smart grids and recharging systems.
