TechFlow Energy & Mobility Solutions
What if electric cars could return power to the grid during peak demand periods and then replenish their batteries during off-peak hours? What if the military could securely monitor and analyze its off-the-shelf building control systems using one network without compromising security demands? With the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory under a Federal Grant, TechFlow Energy & Mobility is developing an advanced vehicle-to-grid, or V2G, program to harness the unused energy of resting electric vehicles to boost a grid's peak power reserves, enhancing energy resilience for government facilities. TechFlow is also developing analytics and visualization platforms for building control systems for the military that optimizes energy usage, helps reduce facility maintenance costs, and guarantees a cyber safe environment.
At TechFlow Energy & Mobility Solutions, we believe that energy efficiency alone is insufficient. In today’s operating environment, Energy must not only be used efficiently, it must be employed effectively and securely. TechFlow’s core strength resides in our ability to ensure Energy is Acquired Appropriately, Used Effectually, and Safeguarded Securely. These elements combine to produce what we at TechFlow call Energy Effectiveness.
TechFlow Energy & Mobility Solutions has positively impacted the energy, environmental, and financial performance of some of the world’s most successful companies and the United States Government by leading the creation, development, and implementation of innovative energy effectiveness and mobility practices and projects including:
- Electric Vehicle to Grid, Vehicle to Building and Vehicle to Microgrid
- Energy Technology Integration
- Energy Management and Analytics
- Cyber Secure Energy Management and Micro Grid
- Energy Storage
- Demand Response
- Renewable Energy Generation
- Energy Project Planning, Validation, Measurement, and Verification (PVMV)
- Autonomous Vehicle Demonstration and Optimization
- Cyber Secure Mobility Solutions
Some of Our Exciting Projects
- TechFlow Energy & Mobility Solutions is providing design support for Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar “Vehicle to Microgrid” integration program and technical coordination for MCAS Miramar “Vehicle to Microgrid” integration program in partnership with Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the California Energy Commission (CEC). This project, funded by the CEC and led by LBNL, is being implemented to demonstrate the value and benefit of transitioning a conventional fleet of fossil fuel vehicles to a fleet of Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs). It is also intended to demonstrate the ability of these vehicles to not only meet the military mission of the base but, at the same time, provide Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) energy service to the base’s electrical infrastructure when the vehicles are not in operation but are available at their charging station. This project is an integral part of a new Microgrid being installed on MCAS Miramar, which is part of the DOD’s initiative to demonstrate increased energy resilience at critical national defense facilities.
- TechFlow Energy & Mobility Solutions is also working with LBNL and Los Angeles Air Force Base in a first of its kind second-life electric vehicle battery application funded by the CEC to highlight the re-usability and breathe second life into used electric vehicle batteries. The project demonstrates how recycling used electric fleet batteries can create an energy reserve. Using a new battery management system and connecting to the base's microgrid allows the solution to be deployed at the base as static energy storage balancing solar assets and providing energy resilience and islanding in the event of an emergency operations scenario. This project will be the first of its kind in the United States.
