The aim is to create a system in which electric vehicles use and temporarily store energy. The charging station serves as an active node that communicates with the vehicle and an energy management system in the smart grid.
The use of smart grids in the field of electromobility calls for the development of new communication interfaces. Copyright: formidee designbüro
One of the benefits for drivers is access to variable energy rates. This approach also allows the energy provider or grid operator to integrate the electric vehicle into the energy management system of the smart grid.Digital information flow for more convenient driving
Information such as location, opening hours, number of open charging stations, current energy rates and available payment options will provide drivers a range of benefits. Charging stations situated within the vehicle’s estimated operating range can be reserved even while driving. Another advantage for drivers involves taking into account individual preferences such as planned driving routes and simplified billing models, which are made possible through automatic vehicle identification. Time-shifted charging makes optimal use of the grid’s capacity, a feature that can eventually contribute to maintaining a stable energy network. This is a key issue for energy providers and operators because sufficient renewable energy supplies are not always on-hand and that means drivers have to be highly flexible. In the end, consumers, energy providers and grid operators will all reap significant benefits from the SmartV2G project innovations.Globalizing E-vehicles through standards
A demonstrator developed by Fraunhofer ESK runs through the entire information chain, from the vehicle to the control center energy management system. This results in the exchange of a variety of information such as battery status, charging progress, charging mode, authentication data and price and payment information.
The SMARTV2G (smart vehicle-to-grid interface) project is being funded through the European Union’s Seventh Framework Program (FP7).PR & Marketing Contact

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.
Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...
Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...
Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
