The paper “Paving the Way: Vehicle-to-Grid Standards for Electric Vehicles” prepared by Midhat Mafazy of Interstate Renewable Energy Council reviews the status of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) standards and any gaps that need to be addressed to unlock the capabilities of V2G-enabled equipment. This paper introduces various V2G technologies and configurations, walking through a number of technical and regulatory challenges.

Before V2G can be implemented across the country, states will have to navigate the evolving landscape of technical standards that govern the certification of V2G-enabled equipment and integrate these standards into their rules and technical documents. This paper provides the starting point for regulators and other stakeholders to begin that process and unlock the potential of V2G technology on the grid.
