Vehicle to Grid (V2G) Charging : Balancing the grid
V2G charging equipment allows EV drivers to help balance the UK’s electricity grid by providing energy from their vehicle batteries to the grid at times of peak demand and benefit from rewards based on the provision of grid services and energy trading revenue. So you could charge your EV and save money on your energy bills.
We have been involved with charging trials in the past (Electric Nation and My Electric Avenue). These projects help electricity Network operators understand the impact EVs might have on our UK electricity grid as EV uptake increases. Currently, there are a number of Vehicle to Grid charging trials running in the UK (or about to start) for CHADEMO-equipped EVs, such as the Nissan LEAF and Nissan E-NV200 van.
