Vehicle to Grid Simulator Will Help Harness EVs

EV imageV2G Sim, a vehicle-to-grid simulation program developed by EETD researchers, will help government authorities, power markets, entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders harness the resource offered by the growing fleet of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). The PEV fleet can be used to avoid potential shortages of electricity during peak times, and provide extra storage capacity when the grid is generating more than it needs to satisfy demand.
