FCA Trials V2G in Italy

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are following in Nissan’s power cable tracks by trialling vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology in Italy.

It has teamed up with energy provider Terna in the project that will allow its BEV products to return unused electricity back to the national grid while earning the vehicle’s owner cash in return. The move follows Nissan’s announcement last week of its multi-country infrastructure rollout deal with EDF.

An experimental fleet of cars, equipped with V2G technology, will be built by FCA and connected to the grid in order to explore the effects on the batteries. Simultaneously, Terna is building an ‘e-mobility lab’ in Turin, trialling how a car interacts, in both one way and two-way fashions, with the grid.
