Charged EVs | Revel, Fermata and NineDot launch grid-connected V2G system in NYC
E-mobility and infrastructure supplier Revel, clear power developer NineDot Power and V2G innovator Fermata Power have launched a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) mission that they are saying is the primary one to be related to New York Metropolis’s electrical grid.
The bidirectional charging system, which is now stay at Revel’s Pink Hook, Brooklyn warehouse, can each cost EVs and discharge power from the EVs’ batteries to Con Edison’s grid.
NineDot and Fermata activated the V2G system following a profitable testing program performed over the summer season. The V2G system at present operates with Nissan LEAs, and the businesses goal to include extra EV fashions as V2G expertise turns into extra obtainable.
The system makes use of three Fermata bidirectional chargers working on a cloud-based platform, and may export roughly 45 kW again to the grid.. Based mostly on the interconnection settlement with Con Edison, the chargers ship power saved in car batteries again to the grid from 2-6 pm, throughout native power demand peaks.
“As EV adoption continues to develop in New York Metropolis, V2G will probably be essential to managing power use and grid capability,” mentioned Paul Suhey, COO and co-founder of Revel.
“With the fitting expertise, EVs assist grid resilience, moderately than appearing as only a grid drain. That’s an essential change that New York and Con Edison are bringing to the business,” mentioned David Slutzky, CEO and founding father of Fermata Power. “Each Revel and NineDot are forward-thinking firms that perceive the significance of V2G and V2X applied sciences in supporting the grid and decarbonization.”
“As a number one developer of city community-scale power initiatives, we see vital potential for V2G to enhance the battery power storage options we’re constructing in New York Metropolis and surrounding areas,” mentioned David Arfin, CEO and co-founder of NineDot Power.
