Nissan-backed White Paper Highlights Benefits of V2G Tech
Nissan, in collaboration with Imperial College London and e-mobility solution provider E.ON Drive, has released a White Paper report in the UK on how bi-directional charging capability of electric vehicles (EVs) could contribute to lower emissions and help achieve long-term goals in relation to climate change.
The White Paper offers supporting recommendations and calls for the introduction of incentives to accelerate widespread adoption of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging systems, enabling potential benefits to be unlocked.
It also addresses some of the challenges that will be faced in the early days of V2G, particularly around creating a reliable business case in the context of evolving energy markets and regulation.
Key insights of the report indicate that V2G could deliver the following benefits:
• An overall power system cost saving of £410m-£885m ($AU718m-$AU1.5b) per year during the next decade from offsetting capital and operational expenditure.
• Electricity system operation cost savings of up to £12,000 ($AU21,000) per annum per EV and CO2 reduction of approximately 60
tonnes per annum per EV.
• Annual fleet V2G charging benefits could range between £700-£1,250 ($AU1225-$AU2185) per vehicle.
