Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) is a concept originally developed in Japan to provide people with electricity from their electric car during a power outage.
NewMotion, Enervalis, MagnumCap, Alliander, Buurauto and Amsterdam Smart City, joined forces to investigate whether or not this clean energy storing solution could be interesting for us as well. During a real-life pilot, the V2G technology was tested and several hypotheses were explored in regards to determine the value of this technology.
The supply of solar power is growing rapidly. Great news, because our daily energy consumption is increasing as well! However, we could benefit from this growing supply even more if we were able to store the generated electricity in times of overproduction. Electric vehicles offer great storage potential and are readily available.
