Use case

Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G)

Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) enables users to program their EVs to automatically discharge energy back to the grid at times of peak demand. They can also reduce their energy bills by using their EV battery to power their home during peak periods or outages.

  • Provide energy independence

    Give your users a robust and reliable source of energy that is decentralized, secure, and immediately available during grid outages or emergencies.

  • Monetize your user base

    Build new revenue streams by giving users the tools to participate in energy markets and monetize their excess energy.

How it works

Enable V2G in your app

Users connect V2G-enabled EVs and home chargers

Users sign into their OEM account using Enode’s link UI, and easily connect their EV and home charger to your app.

Users specify their V2G preferences

Users set their preferences in the case of an outage, a spike in energy prices, or a demand response event.

V2G is automatically activated

If users' cars are charged and plugged in, they will automatically begin dispatching energy to the grid when the pre-determined conditions are met. Users will be notified through your app and have the option to override any energy dispatch.
