Electric vehiclesProject Realising Electric Vehicle-to-Grid Services
The report summarises the lessons learnt from the complex undertaking of implementing V2G as a key part of the future energy system.
The Realising Electric Vehicle-to-grid Services (REVS) project is a multidisciplinary, multi-industry project that aims to demonstrate vehicle-to-grid (V2G) as a key part of the future energy system. In this project 51 Nissan LEAF vehicles are connected to the energy system through bidirectional chargers. These vehicles provide contingency frequency control (FCAS) services. The vehicles, 50 of which are part of the ACT Government fleet, are used day-to-day for normal fleet duties.
This report documents the technical and business capabilities that have been developed and implemented as part of delivering REVS, as well as the additional capabilities required to implement V2G in a fully-fledged real world offering.
