New York City’s First V2G Programme Launches in Brooklyn

Revel, NineDot Energy and Fermata Energy have launched the first Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) programme connected to New York City’s grid.

Electric mobility and infrastructure company Revel has partnered with V2G provider Fermata Energy and ‘clean energy developer’ NineDot Energy to deploy a bidirectional charging system that can charge and discharge electric vehicles.

This system’s purpose is to support grid resilience by providing the grid with energy in times of high demand.

The V2G technology is comprised of three Fermata Energy bidirectional chargers which operate on a cloud-based platform.

The chargers send energy from the vehicle batteries to the grid from 2–6pm, exporting approximately 45kW back to the grid.

Paul Suhey, COO & Co-Founder of Revel said;

“As EV adoption continues to grow in New York City, V2G will be crucial to managing energy use and grid capacity. Revel is proud to partner with Fermata Energy and NineDot Energy to launch this first-of-its kind programme in our home borough of Brooklyn.”

The V2G system is now live at Revel’s Brooklyn warehouse in New York City following successful trials over the summer.

It is currently compatible with Nissan LEAF electric vehicles, but aims to incorporate more models as the V2G technology continues to develop.

The project is partly funded by a NineDot Energy grant from the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) with support from the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

Recently, results were published of a first integration of V2G technology in Great Britain.
