V2G – Vechicle to Grid –

Last updated: 24th December 2020

Vehicle to grid (V2G) technology allows electric vehicle (EV) batteries to store energy and discharge it back to the electricity network when it’s most needed.

With the optimisation of V2G charging, you could see potential savings on your business energy bill of £250 to £450 a year per charger. This is equivalent to around 9,000 free miles a year(1).

Vehicle to grid – all the benefits of smart charging, plus

Generate savings and reduce your running costs

Vehicle to grid uniquely lowers the cost of running your business’s electric vehicles by generating savings through a combination of ‘behind-the-meter’ reductions in network charges and savings in energy costs.

The savings made through EDF’s V2G charging service are shared with you on your energy bill, and can help reduce the annual cost of electric fuel (equivalent to an average 9,000 miles per year per V2G charger, enough to run your vehicles for free.

Show that your business is supporting environmental sustainability

Vehicle to grid increases the positive impact electric vehicles already have in reducing carbon emissions, by supporting the introduction of renewable energy sources to the electric grid.

Electricity generated by intermittent sources such as solar and wind can be stored in EV batteries, and then discharged at times of peak energy demand or those sources aren’t available.
