USA: Vehicle-to-grid (V2G): Endesa develops a charger enabling electric car to return power to the grid

Endesa has developed a prototype V2G (Vehicle to Grid) charger that enables electric vehicles to return stored wind power to the grid.

This technology could be a reality in 2020, and would allow electric vehicle users to sell surplus energy.

Endesa has developed a prototype V2G (Vehicle to Grid) charger that enables electric vehicles to return stored power to the grid. This is an important step in the development of smart grids, which need tools to optimise output and distribution and improve the supply and demand balance between producers and consumers.

Developed by Endesa in conjunction with the CITCEA centre of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC), this innovative system is currently being validated in a lab before being rolled out to Endesa’s Smartcity in Malaga for testing in a real environment with real users. They hope the charger will become a reality in 2020.

Connection of the electric car to the grid has been carried out using models that are compatible with the established standards, so that this system can be tested in all commercial vehicles equipped with this technology. Endesa will be able to use the first electric vehicle of this kind in the world, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, to carry out the trials with the V2G charger.

After a year of research, this technology now offers many advantages:
