UL Solutions announced it issued its first certifications to Fermata Energy, an artificial intelligence-driven V2G bidirectional software platform services provider. UL Solutions said the certifications include UL 9741, the standard for bidirectional EV charging system equipment, and UL 1741 SA, the standard for inverters, converters, controllers and interconnection system equipment for use with distributed energy resources.
Fermata Energy’s FE-20 bidirectional EV charging system achieved certification to UL 9741 and UL 1741 SA. UL 1741 SA addresses inverters and other utility-interconnected distributed generation equipment for grid support functions, enabling smarter, safer reactive grid interconnection, Fermata said.
“With Fermata Energy achieving the first UL 9741 and UL 1741 SA certification of a vehicle-to-grid compliant bidirectional EV charger, UL Solutions is helping to build trust in this technology among fleet managers, consumers and other stakeholders,” Milan Dotlich, vice president and general manager of energy and industrial automation at UL Solutions said. “We continue to monitor technical developments and regulatory changes to help enable innovation and speed to market as the future of mobility evolves.”
