Podcast: Exploring Vehicle-to-Grid with Raphael Hollinger

With gigawatts of storage joining the roads, how can electric vehicles make full use of their storage capacity to be flexible assets able to support the electricity grid? Vehicle-to-grid can act as mobile storage units, helping contribute to a stable grid system. So what is involved?

In today’s episode, Raphael Hollinger, Chief Data Officer at The Mobility House, joins guest host Ed Porter to discuss vehicle-to-grid technology and the wider market across Europe. Over the conversation, they discuss:

  • ‘Zero zero’ getting to a future of zero cost and zero emissions for electric vehicles.
  • How vehicle-to-grid (V2G) enables an electric car to be a flexible asset to the grid.
  • The opportunities that open up with increased market access and how to manage and build confidence in this movement.
  • What other options are available to EV batteries - a look at second life and even zero life.
  • Some of the differences in markets across Germany, France and the UK.
