OEIP helps startup gain worldwide rights to UD’s vehicle-to-grid technology
Imagine the possibilities for drivers around the world if they all could plug their vehicles into a charging station and connect directly to the grid, to either recharge or send their surplus energy back.
University of Delaware researchers have been developing such technology for about 20 years, and now their licensed startup company has gained exclusive global rights to market their vehicle-to-grid (V2G) software.
The University recently entered the exclusive licensing and research partnership with the Nuvve Corporation, a Delaware company located in California. Before this agreement, the rights to commercial application were split between a domestic venture with NRG Energy and a partnership with Nuvve for rights outside the United States.
