Electric vehicles (EVs) are parked nearly all the time, and with minor changes, they could provide grid services. They have an onboard battery and conversion equipment. Why, then, do vehicle-to-grid (V2G) applications always feel like they’re 10 years away? How do we support seamless, least-cost, reliable and efficient integration of EV charging data and operations with utility planning, business and customer systems? And what can utility regulators do to ensure that V2G can happen sooner rather than later, turning transportation energy use from a climate challenge into a climate solution?
