V2G TECHNICAL SPECS

FULL V2G Concept

Full V2G Concept

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) allows a parked electric vehicle to charge its battery as well as discharge it battery back to the grid in response to real-time requests from a remote entity such as a grid system operator. This means that the system operator can treat the vehicle as a “smart” load, simply delaying its charge, charging more slowly/quickly, or as a generator that can contribute small amounts of power to the system if the driver allows it. These capabilities, when combined with other EVs, can constitute sufficient capacity to bid into ancillary service markets, producing a revenue stream for the vehicle owner.

In a system that includes V2G-enabled electric vehicles, the power still begins at the generator and travels to the vehicle. In this system, however, in addition to being a smart load a vehicle can report its available capacity for aggregation with that of other vehicles in prior to sending electricity back to the grid for short periods of time. In aggregate, such vehicles can constitute a storage resource of comparable capacity to traditional generators.

V2G Components

Vehicle to Grid Components

Vehicle Smart Link

A communication software and device that receives instructions from the Nuvve aggregation platform in order to control the battery charging and discharging, as well as, predicts travel time and distance.

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment

Also, known as the charging station, it allows not only to charge the electric vehicle but also to discharge it following the instructions that the Vehicle Smart Link receives from the aggregation platform.

Nuvve’s aggregation platform

A cloud connected application that ensures each vehicle has enough charge for the next trip; before calculating how much remaining capacity to sell to grid.
