Coupled with the deployment of smart grid technologies, vehicle electrification presents automakers with some unique opportunities for grid management and integration. In order to align with existing generating capacity, EV charging must be coordinated with grid conditions. This involves “smart” charging strategies to match load conditions and minimize the risk of exceeding peak load.
What exactly is vehicle grid integration (VGI)? As the grid grows increasingly bidirectional, VGI refers to the multiple ways in which EVs can provide grid services. For example, a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) energy system allows renewable energy to flow back to the grid from an EV battery, balancing energy production and consumption. There are many other possible use cases and revenue opportunities.
Intertrust enables EV owners, vehicle makers, and grid operators to more easily integrate EVs with the grid by making energy data securely available for collaboration.
