A University of Colorado study will place 10 new plug-in hybrid vehicles into Boulder homes increasing data examining user experience and system interactions in a smart-grid environment.

The study — a collaboration of CU’s Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy National Renewable Energy Laboratory — began in September 2010.

The new vehicles will increase CU’s fleet to 28 vehicles.

The cars are rotated among randomly selected households along with “smart plug” charging stations.
