    1. Will Your EV Keep the Lights On When the Grid Goes Down?

      Will Your EV Keep the Lights On When the Grid Goes Down?

      Home battery systems can help during power outages. So can the battery packs rolling around in electric vehicles. Last month’s preventative power shutoffs in California highlighted the vulnerability of the electricity grid to threats exacerbated by a changing climate. In the wake of the forced outages, much has been written about the ability of solar PV arrays working in tandem with stationary battery storage systems to keep the lights on when the grid goes down. But what about the mobile battery packs carried in the hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles now on the road in California?

    2. Solar-Powered Car Parks with Battery Storage in New Trial

      Solar-Powered Car Parks with Battery Storage in New Trial

      A new pilot to demonstrate a solar-powered car park supported by battery storage for drivers to charge their electric vehicles has been launched. The Smart Hubs Demonstrator R&D project will manage the integration of solar, EV charging, and vehicle to grid systems at car parks and transport hubs. Smart hubs that incorporate energy storage systems are expected to increase the ability to charge large amounts of EVs without placing further pressure on the grid as well as bring revenue streams for car park owners, including airports, train operators, local authorities, hospitals and retail centers.

    3. Pecan Street Launches Texas’ First Grid-Connected Vehicle-to-Grid Research and Testing Center

      Pecan Street Launches Texas’ First Grid-Connected Vehicle-to-Grid Research and Testing Center

      Energy research organization Pecan Street Inc. launched Texas’ first grid-tied vehicle-to-grid (V2G) testing center at its lab in Austin, Texas, turning electric vehicles into a dispatchable load shaving tool for the municipally-owned electric utility, Austin Energy. The V2G testing center is part of Austin SHINES, an Austin Energy project that is testing how energy storage at grid, commercial-, and residential applications-scale to help increase the penetration of solar energy to reduce peak demand, increase grid resiliency and achieve the City of Austin’s renewable energy and storage goals by 2027.

    4. Container Transporters Support Grid Stability as Mobile Power Storage Units

      Container Transporters Support Grid Stability as Mobile Power Storage Units

      Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG  and its partners have begun research and development work at the company’s Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) to integrate the battery capacities of automated guided container transport vehicles that are in use at CTA into the German energy network as flexible storage units that contribute to the grid stability of the power supply. In less busy times, free container transport vehicles could provide battery capacity as mobile power stores to safeguard grid stability.

    5. National Grid to Incentivise Vehicle-to-Grid Tech

      National Grid to Incentivise Vehicle-to-Grid Tech

      Battery storage firm Moixa and National Grid are among the transport and energy organisations working on a project to support vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology. The consortium, which also includes Western Power Distribution, Nissan and Element Energy, aims to incentivise the V2G roll out by sharing increased revenue with drivers of electric vehicles (EVs), owners of smart chargers, managers of charging sites and operators of battery storage.

      EDF Renewable Energy Leads Series A Round in Vehicle-to-Grid Startup Nuvve - Greentech Media

      It's no secret that European utilities have made grid edge technology investments a strategic priority, with a growing focus on e-mobility solutions. This week, that trend continued with a new investment from EDF Renewable Energy. EDF RE announced Monday that it has closed on Series A financing for vehicle-to-grid technology company Nuvve Corporation in partnership with Toyota Tsusho, and with additional support from an unnamed private equity fund.

      Nissan Testing LEAFs In Energy Supply & Demand Management Systems

      A number of companies have, as of late, been testing the potential of using electric vehicles (particularly, their charging systems) as part of energy management systems. And now, it appears that Nissan has decided to get on that wagon as well — recently announcing that it was participating with other businesses and government authorities in Japan in the testing of a new “demand response” energy supply and demand system.

    8. New Initiatives For Energy Storage Development

      New Initiatives For Energy Storage Development

      Today, India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world, with current electricity generation capacity of about 230 GW to meet the needs of over 1.25 billion population. India's per capita annual consumption of energy at approximately 600 kWh is one of the lowest in the world, even when compared to developing countries like Brazil and China. This is a decade where India needs a clean energy revolution for transforming the electricity infrastructure to provide energy access to over 400 million of households that still lack basic access to electricity.

    9. V2G Enabled PEV's to Expand Steadily to 2020

      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.

      GM opens OnStar network for TimberRock to coordinate EV charging and V2G operations

      OnStar gave TimberRock access to its Smart Grid application programming interface so it can determine when to start, stop or modify the charge going to a Volt. TimberRock has software that determines when an electric vehicle can be used to support the electric grid and sell energy back to help peak demand, GM said.
