V2G is a system whereby electric vehicles plugged into a chargepoint can provide bi-directional flows of energy. It can turn your electric vehicle into a mobile battery store. It can help power your home or office in an eco-friendly manner. In turn it can reduce electricity bills, help the electricity grid and generate revenue when used with smart control.
The True Value of V2G Report by Cenex
Cenex has been involved in many V2G projects since 2013 with high profile vehicle and chargepoint manufacturers. ‘The True Value of V2G’ report was created as part of three projects namely, V2G-Britain, Sciurus and EV-elocity. The full report is available here.
This report was published to get important information and analysis out to the industry. Further reports from related projects are expected soon.
