Finding the Right Fit for Vehicle-to-Grid

October 30, 2017 | State of the Market Report

As the world’s fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) grows, idle EV batteries represent an untapped opportunity as a grid resource. To date, numerous trials have experimented with pulling power from these batteries, but the technology has yet to see its first true commercial deployment. As many players eye this new potential market, an understanding of the drivers and barriers to adoption from the customer perspective is critical to finding the right applications for vehicle-to-grid (V2G). In this report, we analyze the strength of drivers and barriers in six key applications, finding that fleet vehicles are a better fit than personal vehicles, with service and delivery fleets making the strongest case for V2G.
