The continued growth of the plug-in EV (PEV) industry is pushing development of vehicle grid integration (VGI). The concept enables direct control of PEV charging, and in some cases, discharging. This capability has many potential uses. As such, governments and industry stakeholders have been keen to see VGI advance. This interest is evidenced by more than £25 million ($30 million) in UK government funding for bidirectional charging (V2G) demonstrations and ¥4 billion ($35 million) in Japanese government funding of virtual power plant (VPP) demonstrations; two of which are V2G.
A form of VGI is largely a subset capability of EV charging companies. Behind-the-meter (BTM) load-balancing or shifting load to off-peak times is common among charging network developers and charger management platforms. A more advanced form of VGI, leveraging bidirectional chargers or aligning charging with grid service markets, capacity markets, or renewables generation is less common. Companies in this space are growing, and advanced VGI solutions are progressing from prototype to commercial-scale.
This ‘Navigant Research Leaderboard’ examines the strategy and execution of 10 providers of advanced VGI solutions. These suppliers are rated on 10 criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners; technology; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; industry recognition, diversification, product portfolio, and staying power. Using Navigant Research's proprietary Leaderboard methodology, vendors are profiled, rated, and ranked with the goal of providing industry participants with an objective assessment of these companies' relative strengths and weaknesses in the current commercial charging services market.
