Clean energy stored in electric vehicles to power buildings

Clean energy stored in electric vehicles to power buildings

Stored energy from electric vehicles (EVs) can be used to power large buildings - creating new possibilities for the future of smart, renewable energy - thanks to ground-breaking battery research from WMG at the University of Warwick . Dr Kotub Uddin, with colleagues from WMG's Energy and Electrical Systems group and Jaguar Land Rover , has demonstrated that vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology can be intelligently utilised to take enough energy from idle EV batteries to be pumped into the grid and power buildings - without damaging the batteries. This new research into the potentials of V2G shows that it could actually improve vehicle battery life by around ten percent over a year. For two years, Dr Uddin's team analysed some of the world's most advanced lithium ion batteries used in commercially available EVs - and created one of the most accurate battery degradation models ...
