Nissan and EDF have signed a deal to work together on developing smart charging solutions, known as vehicle to grid (V2G), for electric vehicles (EVs).
Company car parks and council pool fleets are among the scenarios which are best suited to vehicle to grid (C2G) electric vehicle charging, Cenex has found.
Vehicle to grid technology has the potential to earn electric vehicle operators money, but it is not without some risks.
Groupe Renault has begun the first large-scale pilot schemes in alternating-current, vehicle-to-grid charging in electric vehicles. The schemes will be run in the Netherlands and Portugal.
But several barriers stand in the way of V2G technology providing a solution
WiTricity has collaborated with Honda for its wireless vehicle-to-grid energy management system, which will debut at the Consumer Electronics Show.
OVO has successfully installed its first vehicle-to-grid charger in a customer’s home, after the charge point was unveiled at the Energy Technology Product Showcase earlier this year.
Government-funded and commercial-backed ventures are seeking to identify solutions to some of the most pressing concerns around EV charging infrastructure.
EDF Energy has collaborated with Nuvve to provide Vehicle to Grid (V2G) smart charging to fleet operators.
Energy minister Claire Perry hails OVO Energy for its “innovative” electric vehicle products - enabled by smart meters.

A £400,000 Government-funded project is to investigate whether gamification could encourage electric car drivers to engage with vehicle-to-grid technologies.
The Ovo charger will give drivers the option to discharge and sell surplus electricity from their electric vehicle batteries back to the grid.
Two-way batteries on electric vehicles open up the possibility of fleets selling power back with Vehicle to Grid technology.
