Delta Products, a US-based subsidiary of Taiwan-owned company Delta Electronics, has received R&D funding amounting to $2 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The research project will focus on the development of cost-effective, residential electric vehicle chargers, which can be connected to smart grids of electricity. This aims to facilitate deployment of charging infrastructure for plug-in electric vehicles over the next three years.

According to Delta Electronics, Delta Products will team up with utility companies and automobile manufacturers in North America to develop innovative electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). The collaboration will work toward minimizing the cost of communications between chargers and grids, and meet local demand for smart charging.

Next-generation EVSE are envisioned by DOE to support smart grids of electricity for efficient management of availability and reliability of power supply, especially during peak hours and in locations with many chargers. This will optimize power distribution and reduce cost of charging as well as enable fast and efficient charging.
