Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) electric vehicles have an advantage over competing centralized generation assets

V2G electric cars with lithium ion batteries have an advantage over competing centralized generation assets because they can stabilize the grid at the endpoints closer to demand.

Although the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) concept of sharing power to the grid from plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) has been in existence for nearly two decades, the underlying technologies are only just now emerging from the pilot project phase. Beginning in the next half-decade, however, PEVs with V2G technology will play an important role in the ancillary services market, helping to address regional power grids’ continual need for stabilization to match supply demand. According to a recent report from Pike Research, these vehicles will compete with traditional generation sources as well as with emerging technologies, such as stationary battery storage, for revenue from ancillary services such as frequency regulation and demand response.

By 2017, according to the cleantech market intelligence firm, approximately 90,000 light-duty vehicles and an additional 1,500 medium/heavy duty trucks will be enabled with V2G technologies, generating revenue of more than $18 million.
