Concurrent Technologies Corp. has won an additional $15 million on its energy and environment research contract with the Air Force Research Laboratory.
CTC works with the Army and Air Force to integrate vehicle-to-grid systems at pilot installations that include plug-in electric vehicles under the contract, CTC said Friday.
Vehicle-to-grid also contain bi-directional charging stations and software controls intended to help the installations compete in the frequency regulation and other energy markets, CTC says.
Mark Ray, CTC AFRL program manager, said the company will work with the Air Force’s advanced power technology office and the Army’s tank automotive research and development and engineering center to design and integrate vehicles for the program.
Originally awarded in June 2009, the contract’s ceiling value increased from $98 million to $113 million with the new award.
The Defense Department intends to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and petroleum consumption through the program.
