A conceptual framework for the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) implementation

Christophe Guille, George Gross

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper focuses on presenting a proposed framework to effectively integrate the aggregated battery vehicles into the grid as distributed energy resources to act as controllable loads to levelize the demand on the system during off-peak conditions and as a generation/storage device during the day to provide capacity and energy services to the grid. The paper also presents practical approaches for two key implementation steps - computer/communication/control network and incentive program.
