VEHICLE TO X (V2X) ALREADY A REALITY AT CHAdeMO
CHAdeMO protocol detailing V2X extension is available to Members. Certification of V2H/ V2L chargers is already available in Japan and in Europe.
“By 2025 V2G could provide additional revenues and cost savings of US$2 billion to global energy suppliers and offer consumers 15% savings on household energy bill”
A crucial element for a switch to renewables, V2X technology enables using EVs as both vehicles and portable batteries. With V2H devices, EVs can financial benefits to the EV owner:
- Save costs by optimizing the energy usage (e.g. charge from PV and use later).
- Make money by providing services to the Grid. CHAdeMO’s EVs are the only mass-produced cars readily capable of V2X.
CHAdeMO-based V2X demo projects
Projects using V2X capacities of CHAdeMO protocol have been going on around the world since 2012. Recently, their scale and numbers have been growing, with more and more initiatives in Europe and the US. These demonstration projects provide valuable findings and data for large scale market deployment of V2H/ V2G technology.
