Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) is a promising approach to solve the problem of grid-level intermittent supply and demand mismatch, caused due to renewable energy resources, because it uses the existing resource of electric vehicle (EV) batteries as the energy storage medium. EV battery design together with an impetus on profitability for participating EV owners is pivotal for V2G success. To better understand what battery device parameters are most important for V2G adoption, we model the economics of… Expand
