Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Create Added Monetary Value for Owners of Electric Cars and Stabilise the Power Grid of the Future.
Thanks to the energy transition also called ‘Energiewende’ and the expansion of renewable energies, the public grid experiences an increased fluctuation. On very sunny or windy days, the share of renewable energy is higher than previously predicted. On days or at certain times of the day with low energy generation from renewables, gas power stations, for example, must therefore run at full capacity.
The associated necessity for grid stabilisation increases the additional short-term and long-term storage capacity. With the help of intelligent swarm management, surplus or underproductions in the grid are balanced. In this way, The Mobility House creates added monetary value for the owners of electric cars and stabilises the power supply for a regenerative future.
In our short video we simply and clearly explain how Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) work.

What does Vehicle-to-Home and Vehicle-to-Grid mean?
How Vehicle-to-Home and Vehicle-to-Grid work
Functionality of Vehicle-to-Home:
The sun is shining: the electric car is being charged with renewable energy from solar panels. The car owner can feed the solar energy into the public grid and receive remuneration for this service. The remuneration amount (also known as feed-in tariff) depends on the construction year of the PV system. Alternatively, he can store the generated energy in the battery of his electric car. He can then use this energy in the evenings when the sun has stopped shining and energy consumption at home increases. The user therefore uses less energy at expensive standard tariffs, thereby saving money.
Functionality of Vehicle-to-Grid:
If too much or too little power is generated, the power supply can become unbalanced. The Mobility House bundles several electric cars together and uses the performance of this swarm intelligently in order to balance out these instabilities. These services are called ancillary services. In order to provide this service, electric cars which can be charged bi-directionally are needed. Bidirectional means that energy from the grid can flow into the electric car and vice versa. The electric car owner determines how much battery capacity he wishes to make available to the swarm managers of The Mobility House. This ensures that the electric car driver always has enough energy in the „tank“ and is therefore mobile at all times with a sufficient battery level. With the revenues which The Mobility House generates on the energy market from this service, the owner can reduce his vehicle costs.
