3CHARGY has been investing in the development of V2G technology for years to create innovative products and services.
V2G is a technology that enables bidirectional transmission of electricity between an electric car connected to a charging station and the power grid.
V2G charging points enable a two-way flow of energy in the form of charging or discharging an electric vehicle. During periods of sudden increases in electricity demand on the grid, fully charged vehicles can return energy to the grid. The process is very simple and requires no special equipment. The high-voltage charged battery of an electric car can discharge by connecting to a charging station, which operates on the basis of a smart cloud. The flow of energy is managed by the car's control unit (ECU) and a similar unit in the charging station.
Vehicle-to-grid is smart charging that takes it a step further and opens up a wide range of possibilities in this field.
The solution is of great benefit to EV owners, who turn to the network operator for this service, leveraging their investment in EVs and setting limits so they always have the coverage they need.
V2G technology helps balance demand on the grid and seamlessly integrate renewable energy sources so that utilities can reduce their dependence on fossil fuel power plants, helping them meet their sustainability goals.
V2G technology makes it easier to store renewable energy and use it at the right time. With V2G, temporary spikes in a building's electricity consumption can be offset by electric cars, reducing the need to draw additional energy from the grid.
Fleet owners can make money on their fleets by feeding extra energy into the grid, thereby reducing energy costs. This can also provide an incentive for ICE fleet operators to switch to green modes of transportation.
AERO is the world's most advanced AC charging station for electric vehicles. Its electronics support ISO 15118-20 and OCPP 2.0, so it is bidirectional and designed to support all advanced V2G and Smart Charging services. It is also designed to support Plug & Charge functions.
AERO is the ideal home or public charging station for those looking for a state-of-the-art, easy-to-use and safe solution. With the e-mob APP and internet connection, charging is as easy as ever.
