A fleet of 15 Renault ZOEs, all equipped with V2G technology (vehicle-to-grid), will be deployed throughout the year 2019 in Europe, including France, to prepare future reversible load offerings. group.
The Renault group wishes to play an important role in the energy transition, the idea being to be able to modulate the charging and the discharge of the battery of the electric vehicle according to the needs of the user and the available electricity supply. the network.
This means, for example, that in case of peak consumption, the vehicles are able to inject themselves into the network by restoring some of what their batteries still contain. The ZOE then participate in the stability of the network.
The motorist will be paid if he exchanges current
The purpose of these tests is to demonstrate the effectiveness of this system at the level of the local power grid, to calculate its cost and to build the standards necessary for its future large-scale deployment.
In the future, the owner of an electric vehicle can, very simply via its specific application, choose its type of charging, conventional or bidirectional. In this case, he can be paid by the operator in exchange for the current and provided with the guarantee that his battery will be fully charged when leaving.
