SEONGNAM, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GO–Gridwiz, a Korea-based clean energy technology company, announced the successful validation of its V2G (Vehicle to Grid) charging technology through the Smart Green Industrial Complex-Microgrid Project.
An industrial complex in Changwon, Korea, is being used as the basis for the project to test whether customers can be supplied with electricity by leveraging hydrogen fuel cells, photovoltaics and other clean energy sources along with EV chargers and resources with ESS capabilities. and V2G, without depending on the energy of the public network.
As a project participant, Gridwiz’s role is to build and operate V2G charging stations, and the company has been successful in conducting technology validation in exporting electricity stored in electric vehicles modified for V2G functionality to customers via V2G chargers. . Gridwiz recently joined the 15118-20 Test Symposium hosted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to successfully verify the modem (SECC) mounted on its chargers for V2G communication compatibility and security performance, properly demonstrating the technological maturity of the company throughout the global market.
Korea, where Gridwiz is based, is still making progress with its V2G-related laws and institutions, and there are significant barriers to entry for even the most technologically savvy companies. However, these barriers may come crashing down soon with the advent of a proposed bill to mandate V2G technology for electric vehicles and chargers.
Korea is experiencing a steady increase in abatement issues amid increased availability of renewable energy sources. Gridwiz’s V2G technology will play a pioneering role in further unlocking the potential of EV batteries as a solution to address the increasingly serious problem of renewable energy intermittency.
A Gridwiz official clearly stated: “We at Gridwiz have developed our V2G charging technology and validated its performance to quickly keep up with the changing market. We not only support V2G technology, but we will also lead the market for electric vehicles and chargers to take on an even bigger role in the grid.”
Gridwiz is an energy technology company that offers solutions that enable seamless integration into the renewable energy grid. Gridwiz participates in the aggregation of DER (Distributed Energy Resources) and operates DR (Demand Response), energy battery storage, electric vehicles and renewable energy, among others. The company operates nearly 3 GW of distributed energy resources based on its energy data to provide energy services to more than 1,000 industrial customers.
