Why V2G is gaining momentum (9) – V2G Battery Wear

During the past 10 years of working on V2G, the question posed to me the most, invariably always centers on battery degradation. The good news: it is low We now have a much better understanding from simulations, laboratory tests and actual V2G commercial deployments. Nuvve/Nissan/Enel have deployed 10 Nissan e-NV200 EVs (24 kWh), 10 Enel …

Why V2G is gaining momentum (8) – Regulations

Great news on the regulation front.  California is leading the way towards E-Mobility. The regulatory rules adopted by CA will likely be followed by other states and countries. The “mother of all rules” for interconnecting bi-directional EVs (DERs) is Rule 21. It was enacted to cope with a large amount of solar being connected to …

Why V2G is gaining momentum (7) – V2G Value to California (CA)

CA has a goal of 5 million ZEV on the road by 2030  Assuming an EV cost of $25,000 (please Mr. Musk and VW); a 60-kWh battery and 10 kW charger. If these EVs were all bi-directional this would result in: * 300 GWh additional storage capacity (Today appr. 4.2 GWh energy storage is procured …

California has to step up to the plate to get Energy Resilient Vehicles on the road and lead the world to more resilient energy infrastructures. Coping with wildfire and PSPS scenarios requires all hands-on deck.

This is the 6th of a series of blogs that describe the concept of the Energy Resilient Vehicle (ERV). In previous blogs I have explained how the car manufacturers and the regulatory bodies must step up to the table and help California deal with the wildfire and natural disaster threats through producing so-called ERVs: Blog …
