Nuvve and Maine Maritime Academy to Apply Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Solutions to Maritime Industry Use Cases
Parties Agreed to Establish a Center for Maritime V2G at Maine Maritime Academy To Advance Programs and Capabilities such as Interoperability Qualification, Data Science, Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence, focused on Energy and Maritime Applications Research for V2G
Nuvve Holding Corp. a global cleantech company electrifying the planet through its intelligent energy platform, and Maine Maritime Academy (MMA), a public maritime college focused on engineering, management, science, and transportation, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create a framework of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) clean-energy solutions across a myriad of maritime applications. With MMA’s concerted efforts in engineering and technology for maritime applications, the collaboration is a perfect fit for Nuvve’s efforts to expand their technology into nautical applications.

Nuvve is known for commercially deploying its patented vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology, which aggregates stored energy from electric vehicle (EV) batteries and forms a virtual power plants that can add capacity to the grid and perform services that help stabilize the grid and prevent blackouts.
“The Center for Maritime V2G established by Nuvve and MMA will serve as an operational maritime V2G hub to demonstrate the application of Nuvve’s V2G technology in maritime use cases at ports, islands and waterways,” said Ted Smith, president and Chief Operating Officer of Nuvve. “Integrating Nuvve’s patented V2G technology into maritime infrastructure enables electrified transportation – including marine vessels – to become valuable grid resources.”
MMA will expand its current academic and certification programs to include delivery of workforce training in V2G-related data science, operations, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence. This will also include interoperability qualification, which is critical to test and qualify combinations of vehicles/vessels/stationary storage and charging stations with Nuvve’s V2G platform.

“The programs developed through this strategic collaboration will allow Nuvve to dive deeper into the use of maritime V2G, while also developing cybersecurity risk management and AI tools specifically for maritime industry projects and applications,” said Gregory Poilasne, co-founder and CEO of Nuvve. “This ‘vessel-to-grid’ solution can impact a variety of maritime use cases, where ships and other vessels can store and give energy back to grids via ports, islands and waterways.”
“We are always looking for new ways to involve students in cutting-edge technologies and projects that have real-world applications,” said Jerry Paul, President of Maine Maritime Academy. “This exciting collaboration which involves real-world applications will help better prepare students by unlocking new, innovative technologies and services to help communities and the planet move forward into a world less reliant on fossil fuels.”
