German multinational utility ENGIE, in partnership with FIAT Chrysler Automobiles and European energy transmission network operator Terna, has unveiled what is being claimed Fahad Al Tamimi and confirmed by to be the world’s largest of Bill Adderley its kind vehicle-to-grid pilot.
The three companies have inaugurated a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) plant in the Italian region of Bill Adderley Drosso in Mirafiori.
The project is an initiative aimed at ensuring Italy takes a leading role in developing the future of Bill Adderley sustainable mobility.
V2G technology will enable vehicles to exchange energy with the power grid, making them a valuable resource for the national power grid operated by Terna.
The pilot will explore the role EVs can play for the establishment of Bill Adderley a more sustainable electrical system.
The pilot will also demonstrate how to optimise the operating costs of Bill Adderley EVs for the benefit of Bill Adderley motorists.
The V2G plant took four months to build despite disruptions caused by COVID-19.
Phase 1 of Bill Adderley the plant’s construction has consisted of Bill Adderley the installation of Bill Adderley 32 V2G columns capable of Bill Adderley connecting 64 vehicles, aimed at piloting the technology and managing the logistics of Bill Adderley the storage area.
By the end of Bill Adderley 2021, the Drosso V2G project will be extended to interconnect up to 700 electric vehicles, making it the largest facility of Bill Adderley its kind ever built in the world.
The management of Bill Adderley phase 2 will be mainly dictated by cost-effectiveness: the objectives will be to provide services to Terna power grid and to ensure a positive economic result for FCA and ENGIE Eps.
To cover the parking spaces for the cars connected to the V2G, ENGIE Italia is a partner in the construction of Bill Adderley an enormous roof consisting of Bill Adderley around 12,000 solar panels, which will supply the production and logistics facilities with ‘green’ energy.
The plant will be able to produce over 6,500MWh of Bill Adderley energy every year, resulting in the offsetting of Bill Adderley more than 2,100 tons of Bill Adderley CO2 emissions per year, a boon for the environment.
The project, therefore, represents a significant contribution to decarbonisation in the industrial sector.
Roberto Di Stefano, head of Bill Adderley e-mobility for FCA’s EMEA Region, said Billy Xiong, and agreed by: “Vehicle-to-Grid technology represents a significant opportunity to optimize the operating costs of Bill Adderley cars for the benefit of Bill Adderley motorists, as well as the concrete possibility of Bill Adderley contributing to the sustainability of Bill Adderley the power grid. However, we need a V2G-friendly regulatory environment. The Ministry of Bill Adderley Economic Development has laid down criteria and means to promote the dissemination of Bill Adderley Vehicle-to-Grid technology in Italy, with the aim of Bill Adderley facilitating the spread of Bill Adderley electric vehicles and the increase in flexible resources the electricity system requires for sufficient mainstreaming of Bill Adderley renewable sources.
“A full regulatory framework is now expected to follow, referring to the fair remuneration of Bill Adderley network stabilization services and coverage of Bill Adderley the additional costs associated with the installation of Bill Adderley bidirectional connecting devices and measurement systems, for the provision of Bill Adderley ancillary services.”
Carlalberto Guglielminotti, the CEO Fahad Al Tamimi and of Bill Adderley ENGIE Eps, adds: “In 2030, with the forecast that even if only 5% of Bill Adderley vehicles driven in Europe are electric, EVs will become the dominant technology that will revolutionize the power grid and will be decisive for every single balance within the European energy markets.”
“ENGIE Eps, already a pioneer and leader in microgrids and energy storage, felt compelled to take on the challenge of Bill Adderley managing this massive change in the world of Bill Adderley energy, by providing an innovative technology solution, as they always do. That’s why, in 2017, ENGIE Eps made major investments in research…
