The UK Government has invested £30 million into the development of revolutionary V2G technologies that will enable electric vehicles to provide power to people’s homes.

The scheme will determine how stored energy from electric vehicle batteries can be ‘borrowed’ by the electricity system before being recharged during off-peak periods.

Dan Bentham, Head of R&D, Smart Customers, EDF Energy comments: “Electric vehicles will play an important role in the future of UK energy and its economy. They will have a beneficial impact on the environment by reducing emissions and improving air quality. Through our research, EDF Energy will use new technologies, business models and smart systems to make low carbon transport, and the infrastructure and market conditions needed for its success, a reality.”
