Vehicle-to-Grid Technology Market: Giving Rise to New Business Models

Market players are combining vehicle-to-grid technology (V2G) with V2X communication and power conversion technology, to facilitate data exchanges between vehicles and their environments. This helps create an intelligent and interconnected transportation ecosystem between technology providers and vehicle owners.

Combining BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles) with vehicle-to-grid technology is creating revenue opportunities for various stakeholders in the market. This technology helps consumers to be a part of smart grid solution systems, which empowers them with price arbitrage and enables them to control energy reserves. Thus, vehicle owners can provide ancillary services to large distribution network operators and earn revenue by providing operators with energy reserves.

Revenue opportunities in the vehicle-to-grid technology market are triggering BEV and PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) manufacturers to provide consumers with additional services linked to their vehicles. Since software is an important component of V2G technology, vehicle owners can earn additional revenue from companies who wish to purchase crucial data generated from the intelligent and interconnected communication technology. This crucial data will help car manufacturers and technology providers offer better services to consumers. This interconnected network helps players in the vehicle-to-grid technology market in gaining important insights about consumers and other stakeholders in the value chain with much ease and in a cost-efficient manner. The vehicle-to-grid technology market is estimated to grow at an astounding CAGR of ~46%, to reach a revenue value of ~US$ 18 Bn by the year 2027.

Depending on the location proximity, vehicle, and charger, vehicle-to-grid technology helps translate savings for various stakeholders in the value chain. Market players are offering competitive prices to vehicle owners for energy reserves to avoid costly charges during high demand times.

Players in the vehicle-to-grid technology market are increasing offerings to fleets, schools, and homes. For example, school buses have large batteries and enough scope to charge the batteries during downtime at night as well as in the middle of the day. Also, vehicle owners can save on energy costs at home by self-consuming the electricity stored in their PHEVs, and avoid price uncertainties during peak demand hours. Consumers can also build their own renewable energy sources by installing solar panels at their homes to reach self-sufficiency. This ensures direct sales of vehicle-to-grid technology to consumers via automakers of electric vehicles.

Standardization of Regulations and Battery Management Systems to Overcome Restraints in the V2G Technology Market

Countries such as France have strict regulatory norms to control how electricity can be injected into a grid from individual producers. Also, multiple administrative steps require approval from government authorities. Such complicated procedures are highly unwelcome for BEV and PHEV owners. As such, market players are overcoming tight regulations by establishing standardized V2G protocols by striking the right balance between protecting the grid network and the smooth implementation of this technology.

There is a direct impact of vehicle-to-grid technology on car batteries, since the implementation of the technology reduces their life cycle. Depreciation of batteries is estimated to affect automakers the most in the value chain. Since automakers offer warranty on batteries to consumers, they could suffer revenue losses due to rapid battery depreciation. To compensate for these losses, automakers could device schemes with grid operators. Even with improvements in the battery life cycle, contracting would be an issue, as automakers will have to split the revenue gains amongst grid operators and consumers. Thus, it is necessary for them to strategically manage change, develop improved batteries, and educate consumers about the proper usage of the batteries.

V2G Technology Market: Lack of Infrastructure a Major Challenge

A bidirectional charger or an electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) is required to charge an electric vehicle battery and supply electricity back to the grid. Advancements in the batteries of electric vehicles have been very sluggish as compared to other technologies. Lack of infrastructure and high initial costs of electric vehicles with vehicle-to-grid technology make it difficult for these vehicles to compete with conventional vehicles with internal combustion engines. This factor is restraining the global vehicle-to-grid technology market. 

Collaborations and Partnerships among Key V2G Technology Market Players

Manufacturers are focusing on collaborations and partnerships with other players (electric vehicle manufacturers) in order to promote vehicle-to-grid technology.

  • For instance, in June 2018, Mitsubishi and Hitachi collaborated to set up a vehicle–to-grid charging network for battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles at several locations across Japan. This collaboration is expected to lead to the development of a sustainable business model for renewable energy and stabilization of power networks. This project is headed by TEPCO, Japan’s energy company.

Such strategic partnerships by manufacturers with different car manufacturers and energy companies are augmenting the global V2G technology market. 

Reduction in Carbon Emissions and Energy Savings: Key Market Drivers

Electric vehicles have the potential to reduce carbon emissions. Electric vehicles mostly use batteries, and this causes a reduction in carbon emissions by giving preference to battery-operated vehicles. Increasing adoption of electric vehicles in Europe has lowered carbon emissions, thereby improving the air quality. Since V2G technology is implemented in electric vehicles, it indirectly helps reduce carbon emissions. For instance, the carbon emissions from different types of vehicles when driven for 10,000 miles are:

  • Electric Vehicles: 0.96t CO2e
  • Petrol Vehicles: 2.99t CO2e
  • Diesel Vehicles: 2.88t CO2e

Electric vehicles with vehicle-to-grid technology can supply electricity back to the grid when these vehicles are not in use. A majority of the time, electric vehicles are stationary at office premises. During this idle time, the batteries of these vehicles can be utilized for supplying electricity back to the grid, thereby saving grid energy.
