What is Vehicle to Grid?

Smart charging (V1G) enables control over the charging of EVs in a way which allows the charging power to be increased and decreased or started or stopped as instructed by the charge point demand management software.

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) goes a step further and enables bi-directional charging so that the EV battery can be charged and discharged. This means that as well as using electricity from the grid to charge the EV, the stored energy in the EV battery can be reversed (or discharged) to power your home or send power back to the grid when needed during peak electricity demand. This would help to balance variations in the national energy production and consumption, and to help save you money by buying energy when it is cheaper and greener.
