Vehicle to Grid Technology Explained
Electric vehicles are key to a zero carbon future. One of the challenges they present is an increased stress on the grid (as greater numbers are plugged in at the same time) compounded by the lack of predictability of wind and solar generation.
The solution is battery storage and vehicle-to-grid technology (V2G) flips the issue, EVs becoming part of the solution rather than the problem. There’s a huge amount of energy locked up in electric cars, the batteries of just ten Nissan Leafs could power 1,000 homes for an hour.
With V2G the car battery supplies energy to the home and beyond, supporting the grid. Octopus Energy are once again leading the field with their innovative Powerloop EV lease and energy solution.
