Transport meets Grid

Great catch Charley, V2G has been demonstraed at the U<niversity Of Delaware in the USA for 10 years. All the ACPropulsion made Electric Vehicles have V2G in them but few of the major automakers have joined in yet. Once they figure out how to cover battery warranties of 8 years 100K miles we will be connected.

   Large fleet vehicles like buses are the perfect V2G example. They sit for many hours and days at a time. Once they are connected to the GRID they can charge Off Peak at low rates and help during the Duck Curve hours. A perfect Synergy. When do you this the USA will get more involved in these demonstrations?

We have been doing a V2G real life study for 10 years at the Univ Of Delaware in the USA. They use the MINI-E made for BMW by ACPropulsions.  They even have a Utiltiy agreement where owners get paid $1,200 USD a year for just being plugged in and ready to send power if needed.
