The first “vehicle to grid” (V2G) electric car recharging facilities have arrived in Italy. Thanks to an agreement signed between Enel Energia, Nissan Italia and the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), a pilot corporate electric car sharing project has started with V2G chargers at the IIT headquarters in Genoa.

V2G technology allows e-cars to be considered as real “batteries on wheels”, able to store unused power and discharge it to the grid. All these functions are available thanks to bidirectional charge management.

The columns installed at the IIT will, for the moment, work unidirectionally for recharging and will be the subject of a pilot development project with IIT, pending the definition of the regulatory framework for V2G in Italy.

For car sharing, Nissan has made available to the IIT two 100% electric vehicles, the LEAF model, as well as an App Management Platform called Glide, while Enel Energia has installed two V2G charging stations at the Genoa headquarters of the Institute.
