IBM (IBM) announced that it has teamed with American Honda Motor Co. (HMC) and Pacific Gas and Electric Co., or PG&E, (PCG) on a new pilot project that will allow communication between electric vehicles, or EVs, and the power grid. This project will demonstrate and test an electric vehicle's ability to receive and respond to charge instructions based on the grid condition and the vehicle's battery state. With visibility into charging patterns, energy providers will have the ability to more effectively manage charging during peak hours and create consumer-friendly programs to encourage electric vehicle adoption.

05:19 EDTIBMIBM announces collaboration with ARM Holdings
IBM (IBM) announced an expansion of its Internet of Things, or IoT, platform - called IBM IoT Foundation - through an integration with ARM (ARMH), providing out of the box connectivity with ARM mbed-enabled devices to analytics services. This fusion will allow huge quantities of data from devices such as industrial appliances, weather sensors and wearable monitoring devices to be gathered, analyzed and acted upon. IBM also announced the first in a series of IBM Cloud-based, industry-specific IoT services with IoT for Electronics. The service will enable electronics manufacturers to gather data from individual sensors that can be combined with other data for real-time analysis. The integration between IBM and ARM will allow products powered by ARM mbed-enabled chips to automatically register with the IBM IoT Foundation, and connect with IBM analytics services. This unifies the ARM mbed IoT Device Platform and the IBM IoT Foundation at the point where information gathered from deployed sensors in any connected device is delivered to the cloud for analysis. The IoT connection also enables delivery of actionable events to control equipment or provide users with alerts or other information. For example, the triggering of an alarm message on a washing machine to ask the owner to confirm a breakdown engineer appointment if a fault is detected.

18:49 EDTPCGCalifornia Utilities Commission investigates PG&E safety practices
The California Public Utilities Commission began a formal investigation Thursday into whether Pacific Gas and Electric has corporate governance, clearly documented organizational goals and objectives, and work procedures that "prioritize and improve safety." CPUC President Michael Picker commented, "A public utility's track record of safely operating its system is dependent on more than messages and slogans. An effective safety culture is shaped by... most of all, the accountability set by the top leadership." The CPUC will evaluate PG&E's organizational culture, governance, policies, practices, and accountability metrics in relation to its record of operations, including its record of safety incidents. The CPUC will analyze the methods used by PG&E's board of directors and executive leadership to hold themselves and management accountable for their decisions and actions, including executive compensation policies. "PG&E has invested in safety improvements, added new board members with safety experience, and reorganized to prioritize gas operations safety. But accidents and events affecting the safety of the general public, its customers, and others continue to occur on PG&E's system, prompting the CPUC to take a deeper look." The CPUC's safety and enforcement division will retain the services of an independent expert consultant with experience in auditing corporate governance and accountability, not to exceed $2M. PG&E will reimburse the CPUC for the consultant services, said the Commission. Reference Link
