Tackling the Climate change with CHAdeMO V2G

CHAdeMO Association

Seminar abstract

CHAdeMO Vehicle to Grid (V2G) technology allows the batteries in electric vehicles (EVs) to be charged as well as discharged. Electricity produced from renewable sources can be stored and returned when and where it is needed. As more and more intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar and wind increase, the transmission and distribution systems could become unstable, but V2G technology can help balance this. V2G with a large number of EVs could provide enough flexibility to allow greater amount of renewable energy sources to be integrated into the power system. Consequently, on top of emissions reduced from the EVs as vehicles, they can help decrease greenhouse gases emission in the power supply system, thus contributing to achieving the climate change goals.
In addition, EVs as ‘batteries on wheels’ can serve as an emergency power source wherever it is needed (e.g. in the event of a power failure or natural disaster). Power outages caused by more frequent disasters in the recent years have become a serious social problem and the CHAdeMO system is an effective solution to mitigate such impacts.
In this seminar, we will explain the basic concept of vehicle-grid-integration, state of technical standardization, present project examples and share emerging leanings from these projects. Together with CHAdeMO Association, speakers from the UK, one of the most advanced markets in this domain, will share their projects and emerging learnings, including the results from the world’s largest residential V2G aggregation project, Sciurus.
