    V2G Enabled PEV's to Expand Steadily to 2020

    Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies have been in development since the beginning of the modern electric vehicle era, but are only now beginning to emerge in revenue-generating applications, according to Navigant Research. Though negligible today, the market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) equipped with vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies -- which enable the vehicles to participate in ancillary services for the power grid -- is predicted by Navigant to expand steadily in the coming years.
