Vehicles on the Grid Edge
Grid Edge's innovative approach to unlocking the true value of non-conventional energy storage assets is not limited to buildings. We have been at the forefront of the UK's development of intelligent electric vehicle charging infrastructure and have commissioned and operate the UK's first Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) charging system as part of our award-winning ITHECA project.
The prediction, constrained dispatch optimisation and control algorithms we use for building subsystems have also been adapted and applied to controlling Vehicle- to-Grid (V2G) systems at a technology demonstration stage.
The UK's forthcoming fleet of smarter, more connected and bi-directional electric vehicle equipment provides a significant opportunity for vehicle and charge infrastructure owners to enable their assets to participate in energy markets. Grid Edge's unique approach allows this opportunity to be accessed whilst maintaining charge performance and importantly the trust around these 'auto-grid-edge' transactions.
