End time: 13:50
As the electrification of consumer vehicles gathers pace, the challenges of re-shaping how we use and share energy become more pressing. To get the most out of this exciting, sustainable future with electric vehicles, we will need new tools and technologies. One of the most exciting? V2X, or vehicle-to-everything. Developing V2X and bi-directional charging technology puts the power back into consumers’ hands, turning their EV into a portable battery with which to store energy, divert power back into the home or even sell energy back to the grid in peak usage periods. This session will explain and explore the basics of V2X technology, its potential and its role in the future redevelopment of the UK’s energy system, along with the challenges and pitfalls that the industry faces as it races to stay ahead of consumer needs.
