Electric Vehicle

An Engineering Education Australia webinar:

Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology provides electric vehicle owners with significant economic benefits and supports electrical grids.

The technology enables bi-directional energy transfer to and from plug-in electric vehicles. Power from the vehicle's battery can be fed back to homes, office buildings, or the national electricity grid. V2G technology can reduce concerns of grid overload, provide cheap and fast energy storage, and reduce environmental impact.

Though the technology is becoming increasingly popular overseas, it is a relatively new concept and not well understood. This introductory webinar explores the basic concepts, the current situation, forseeable challenges and opportunities of V2G. 

You'll learn where V2G fits into the electricity industry's rapidly evolving landscape and the challenges we need to overcome to implement V2G more broadly in Australia.

Learning outcomes

  • Define V2G and the technology which delivers
  • Understand the drivers behind V2G and the problems it helps solve
  • Understand how V2G operates
  • Recognise the value V2G generates for its operators and participants
  • Identify the barriers to widespread V2G implementation
