In an important step toward furthering intelligent, efficient, and autonomous electric vehicles, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) plans to partner with EasyMile, a smart mobility solutions company that recently took its EZ10 for a test drive on the NREL campus.

The collaboration aims to further develop such vehicles to possibly integrate innovative technologies such as wireless charging, connected and managed charging, and advanced energy storage.
