Vehicle to grid technology has often been seen as a way to help recover from natural disasters or power cuts by harnessing the power in an electric car’s battery pack. And while there have been some trials involving using electric cars to help smooth grid power in periods of extreme demand or low demand, very few people have wanted to use vehicle to grid with their electric cars as they worried it would affect their car’s battery pack and their daily schedules.
But a new study that’s just finished in Germany in collaboration with The Energy House, Nissan and several other stakeholders has proven those fears aren’t true. Instead, it showcased how electric cars connected to the electricity grid via a two-way charging station could actually help the owner earn upwards of 1,000 euro a year.
