The future of smart charging
When it comes to energy production, decarbonization refers to the deployment of renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. As energy should be either used when it's produced or stored somewhere for later usage, the growth of renewables consequently causes our energy system more volatile, requiring new ways to balance and store energy to be used. Nowadays, the number of electric vehicles is increasing steadily, and the batteries of EVs are by far the most cost-efficient form of energy storage as they do not require additional investment in hardware. Unlike unidirectional smart charging, V2G enables battery capacity to be utilized in more efficient ways, turning EV charging from an electrical demand response to a battery solution.
