About this book

Introduction

This book defines and charts the barriers and future of vehicle-to-grid technology: a technology that could dramatically reduce emissions, create revenue, and accelerate the adoption of battery electric cars. This technology connects the electric power grid and the transportation system in ways that will enable electric vehicles to store renewable energy and offer valuable services to the electricity grid and its markets. To understand the complex features of this emergent technology, the authors explore the current status and prospect of vehicle-to-grid, and detail the sociotechnical barriers that may impede its fruitful deployment. The book concludes with a policy roadmap to advise decision-makers on how to optimally implement vehicle-to-grid and capture its benefits to society while attempting to avoid the impediments discussed earlier in the book.

Lance Noel is a postdoctoral researcher at Aarhus University, Denmark, where he is lead researcher on a $1.6 million grant on the sociotechnical benefits and barriers of electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid in the Nordic region.  

Gerardo Zarazua de Rubens is a doctoral fellow at Aarhus University, Denmark, working on energy and transport systems, data analytics and business development. His recent focus has been on Electric Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Grid implementation in Europe. 

Johannes Kester is a postdoctoral researcher at Aarhus University, Denmark, working on sociotechnical transformations in electricity and alternative transport systems, energy policy, and the role of security in these transformations. 

Benjamin K. Sovacool is Professor of Energy Policy at the School of Business, Management, and Economics, University of Sussex, UK.  He is also Director of the Center for Energy Technologies and Professor of Business and Social Sciences in the Department of Business Development and Technology at Aarhus University in Denmark.
