Electric vehicles utilization for vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services

This report provides a brief overview of the services that EVs can provide to the power system through smart charging, key challenges, and important factors to enable deployment, implementation requirements and way forward for the smooth integration of EVs in the grid. This report looks into bidirectional V2G technologies and on their role in integrating higher renewable energy, while providing services to the grid. Therefore, the major thrust of this report will be on planning and operation of the distribution grid with integration of EV charging infrastructure i.e. smart charging; grid support services from electric vehicles to facilitate large-scale renewable energy integration; technologies and standards for EV charging infrastructure’s integration with distribution grid; policies and regulations for EV charging infrastructure and integration with distribution grid; identifying the key challenges and recommendations for efficient, effective and sustainable integration of EV charging infrastructure in India.
