Role of vehicle-to-x energy technologies in a net zero energy system

Vehicle-to-x (V2X) technologies allow an electric vehicle to export the energy within its battery for another use, for example to a home or to the electricity grid. This offers additional flexibility to the energy system and a potential revenue source for businesses and consumers.

Though V2X technologies have been technically feasible for over a decade, the technology remains expensive and is not yet commercially viable for all use cases.

The IET will aim to respond to the following:

  • the role of V2X technologies in the energy system
  • the barriers that might be preventing this
  • the role of government

The Institution of Engineering and Technology Trustees propose submitting a response to this consultation and invite comments from Members who have expertise in this area and have studied the consultation documents. In its capacity as a professional body, the IET will confine itself to only addressing those questions that are within its area(s) of competence.

For more information and a summary of the questions, please refer to the consultation webpage.

Please respond no later than 9am 28 August 2021 Duncan Kenyon, with "Role of vehicle-to-x energy technologies in a net zero energy system" in the subjsct header.
