SP Group – Trial of vehicle-to- grid1 (V2G) technology
A first in Southeast Asia, SP will test and verify the possibility of tapping energy stored in electric vehicles (EVs). This will enhance grid reliability to cater for the demand on the power grid to support more than 600,0002 vehicles when Singapore phases out Internal Combustion Engine vehicles by 2040.
In a recent press release, SP stated that if V2G technology is proven viable, it can be a cost-effective solution. This will supplement the larger ESSs to overcome intermittency while EV owners can be paid for use of the EV batteries when needed.
Mr Stanley Huang, Group CEO, SP Group stated, “ To empower a sustainable energy future, we are proactively investing in and leveraging smart energy solutions to enhance our grid’s capacity for renewable energy sources.“
SP Group is a leading utilities group in the Asia Pacific, empowering the future of energy with low-carbon, smart energy solutions for its customers.
