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 …

Nuvve wins California Energy Commission (CEC) Awards at the EPIC symposium Oct 19 – 21

I am happy to share that my previous company Nuvve Corp. was awarded 2 prestigious “Visionary Awards” at the EPIC symposium by the CEC.  A panel of judges (see picture) awarded Nuvve the “Best in Storage and Mobility” category award for their work on the V2G EPIC project INVENT (Intelligent Electric Vehicle Integration) at the campus of …

Why V2G is gaining momentum (6) – V2G Costs

A major impediment for V2G has mainly been the high cost of infrastructure The good news: costs* are coming down fast 1.    Infrastructure V2G DC chargers have decreased in price from ~$8,000+ to $2,500 (7.4 kW); V2G AC chargers (10kW-20kW) around $1,000 2.    Energy loss First V2G chargers could have a two-way energy loss of 30% – …

Why V2G is gaining momentum (5) – Economics

For V2G to scale the economics for the players must be convincing. The potential for earning, saving money or improved energy resilience depends on geographic, regulations and tariffs. The earnings/savings can be shared e.g. with the EV owner to lower the cost of EV ownership. Some examples demonstrate the superior economics/value of V2G:  Society Lower CO2 …

Why V2G is gaining momentum (4) – Standards

For V2G to scale, international standards must be in place. Until now the only standard for V2G communication between the EV/EVSE was the CHAdeMO standard. A new standard is underway that will add large momentum to V2G. The Combined Charging System (CCS) is fast becoming the dominant international standard of choice. A new standard protocol …
