Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the technology group Engie EPS, and the Italian power grid operator Terna have inaugurated a pilot project for vehicle-to-grid technology in Turin (Italy). The project is aimed at researching and testing the interaction between electrically powered vehicles and the public power grid. The technology will make it possible for electric energy to flow in both directions between electric vehicles and the power grid. As a result, these vehicles will become a source of energy for the high-voltage networks and will ensure a more sustainable power supply. In return, this will reduce the operating costs of electric vehicles. According to the company, this can only function efficiently if the systems involved can communicate smoothly with one another. This communication is the main focus of the pilot project.
