We analyzed how EVs are using V2G technology and second-life batteries to work closely with the grid.
Electric vehicles are gaining popularity and it’s having a big impact on the electric grid, which manages and distributes the electricity they’re powered by.
While electric vehicles represent a major opportunity for utilities, they can also stress the grid if not managed effectively.
Whether it’s charging at peak hours, when the grid is already overloaded with requests, or pulling in a mix of electricity that may or may not be clean, the EV revolution comes with its fair share of challenges.
As EV adoption grows, two trends are emerging that should help improve the grid’s ability to manage this new demand. We analyzed their adoption across many players, including energy companies, automakers, and startups.
