Benefits Of Grid integration with electric vehicles:

  • The integration of electric vehicles can flatten the charging curve of the network and reduce energy costs.
  • The marginal cost of random load power supply is 556.5 CNY/MWh.
  • Monitoring charging can further reduce the electricity bill to 495.2 CNY/MWh.
  • Grid integration with electric vehicles is cost-effective when considering the cost of battery damage.

In 2015, Mobility House used grid integration with electric vehicles (EV) as additional energy sources for its office coffee machines.

At first glance, it may seem a boring experiment to show that ordinary household appliances can also be operated with electric car batteries.

The batteries of most electric cars are so large that they can store much more energy than is required for a typical trip. These cars not only allow you to commute to get off work, but they also have enough power to consume the 1,520 kilowatt-hours used by ordinary households.

To implement this solution at home within a day, you only need to set up a two-way charging infrastructure so that your EV can only be charged when there is electricity, and act as a power source so that your device can work when there is no electricity.

Interestingly, this all happens in the context of individual families, when we are really taken away, when we imagine how electric car batteries can be used as a decentralized energy storage for the entire country.

Officially approved the use of electric vehicles as a technical solution for controlling power plants directly connected to the German power grid.

Once connected, the infrastructure can take excess power from the grid and store it in the vehicle battery or call it when needed. And feed it back to the grid to stabilize its fluctuations.

This is the so-called vehicle-to-grid (V2G) solution, which is exactly what we need to start and operate a decentralized grid in India.

In order for the distributed storage capacity of our future electric vehicles to be dynamically used by the grid, we need a technical and regulatory framework that enables electric vehicles, renewable energy producers, and the grid to communicate seamlessly with each other.

They will be able to provide excess battery capacity as intermediate storage for the network so that their vehicles can generate revenue when they are stationary. This eliminates the need to invest in physical buildings through the use of distributed storage, thereby reducing capital costs. Stage infrastructure.

Ultimately, this makes projects in the field of renewable energy more attractive because they can better adapt to our experience by temporarily storing our experience with traditional energy. V2G solutions may be the future of India’s decentralized energy.

Since it promotes energy storage in a completely decentralized way in individual consumers’ homes, it can act as a natural barrier in the event of a catastrophic power outage.

It can also increase the profitability of electric vehicles by allowing car owners to rent batteries from utility companies (which still account for about 30% of the car’s value), which in turn can use them to stabilize the grid.

Our cars have always been a mobile asset, but with the help of connected transportation technology, we can double them as energy assets.
