The vehicle-to-grid (or V2G) system can also sell new demand response services as the electricity can be sold back and helps accelerate the vehicles’ charging rate.
In Germany, the electric Nissan Leaf car was approved to serve as a mobile power supply terminal as well as a stabilising back-up of the grid.
ENGIE Eps, which focuses on energy storage systems and microgrids, signed a partnership with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in 2017 to coordinate activities related to electric mobility and the creation of a “real ‘ecosystem’ of products and services to answer to the expectations of electric vehicle owners”.
The partnership includes the creation of the world’s biggest V2G pilot project in Turin in collaboration with ENGIE Italy. The project will incorporate 700 vehicles and will produce 25 MW of electricity to supply stabilization services for the grid when the vehicles are not used.
The project ENGIE DERMS (Distributed Energy Resources Management Systems) has also integrated the V2G technology as part of its seven value proposals to answer the challenges of the Distributed Energy Future.
Dreaming Of Electric Mobility

Retrofitting Cars, A New Sustainable Way To Electrify Vehicles
The process of automobile retrofitting is typically associated with restoring classic cars. But in France, where the COVID-19 pandemic has seen auto sales plunge by 80% in April, a very different kind of retrofitting is part of a new government strategic plan to boost the industry and also to promote cleaner modes of transportation.I'm interested
