    I'd like to learn more about the remuneration to electric car owners as a consequence of battery degradation (due to charging/discharging cycles) in a V2G/V2B (in general, V2X) context. How is it estimated this economic compense? Which is the state-of-the-art in compensation models for EV...

    Hi all, New joiner here. Some help please! I currently have an old Nissan leaf and am looking to stay within the Nissan line-up. I'm really interested in the Octopus V2G bundle; however, it only offers the 40kWh model. I was looking to get into the larger battery model (the 62 Tekna) but am...

    Hi, I've become aware of vehicle to grid technology. It seems very interesting and appears to require specific charging technology (not a surprise). However, does this mean that my current zappi charger will be obsoleted by this - I've heard about poc trials in London? Thx D

    Leo once had a number of fuel-guzzling vehicles, including a Land Rover. But when he bought a 30kWh Nissan Leaf three years ago – in a conscious effort to improve his energy efficiency – he was surprised by how fun it was to drive. “I enjoyed driving the electric car so much, not to mention the...

    For our third statistics release we’re going to focus on November, and we’ll see the impact of the first month of GMT and dropping temperatures. It's hard to avoid extra energy usage during the winter months, and that’s where V2G will be particularly effective in balancing the grid. Once...

    Just saw this on my news feed and thought t was interesting. How an electric car can make you money I thought the only cars that could do V2G were the new Nissan Leaf's. If this is the case then would be interesting if any of the UK companies could offer it.

    Octopus Energy seem to be one of the energy providers that are being really innovative. They've already got Octopus GO and Octpus Agile tariffs which can both work well fpr EV drivers. Well they ae now looking at trialing V2G (Vehicle 2 Grid). I know there was another initiative somewhere in...

    I've registered, just had my confirmation, more as its something I want to be an installer of and have a lot of clients that this would be a great idea for but for all you Leaf 40 people this could be a bit of a game changer. As I understand it only the Leaf 40 is V2G enabled although at the...

    Why is the inverter for a V2G so expensive £8000 to £9500 for a 10KW unit per Drive Electric in UK. DriveElectric launches Vehicle to Grid charging service - DriveElectric Is there not an inverter in an EV and why is this not available to connect the stored battery to the grid ? Are there...

    So it should finally be here next year, anyone fancy spending 9k to see how it works out though? Also what will be the vehicle manufacturers view on how this affects the battery warranty? New V2G service for homes and workplaces could cut electricity bills
