Electric car batteries could be used to boost power storage in the future, injecting electricity into the grid during times of scarcity or storing electricity during periods of excess, a new study found Tuesday.
Renewable energy is essential for the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius, but the need to scale up quickly and the intermittency of wind and solar have raised concerns about meeting electricity demand.
One way to help solve this problem is boosting the storage capacity of electricity grids, so that even when there is no sun or wind energy supply won’t be interrupted.
New research published Tuesday found that electric car batteries could help boost short-term grid storage in times of increased demand or lower supply, either by setting up “vehicle-to-grid” or “second use” schemes.
“Harnessing this potential will have critical implications for the energy transition,” said the study published in Nature Communications.

So long as they do not catch fire....
” so that even when there is no sun or wind energy supply won’t be interrupted.”
OR we could have clean and reliable power provided by gas, coal, and nuclear plants... But no... Now we will all be forced to buy electric cars we don’t want AND keep them plugged in to the grid to store power that we would otherwise need to drive said EVs.
Who would willingly leave their car attached to this system once it is charged?
Isn’t saying that batteries could be key to energy storage kind of obvious? Otherwise, how else would energy be stored, and what other purposes do batteries serve?
In other news...DUH!
FACT: If you charged all the batteries on Earth and ran the world on them, the power would last for eleven seconds.
MORAL: “Renewables” cannot come close to the energy density of “fossil” fuels.
That should increase the life of your electric car battery! Use it to feed power back and forth to the grid.
Government: “The grid is down because of wildfires. All EV homeowners are ordered to plug their EVs into the grid to maintain emergency power.”
Homeowner: “OK, I plugged my EV into the grid, but now the battery is depleted.”
Government: “The wildfires are spreading. All homeowners are ordered to evacuate the area.”
Homeowner” “BUT I JUST DRAINED MY EV BATTERY KEEPING THE GRID ALIVE!”
This guy did the math. Considering your line of work, you should find this interesting.
“When do I get to drive my car?”
You don’t, at least not at your whim. You’ll have to schedule it if it’s convenient for “the Grid.” That’s the whole idea.
How the hell do they think they will make enough electricity to supply every car on the road...and stations...and the rest of the grid......and your electric stove.

Okay, then if I’m going to provide power back into the public grid for everyone to use, and everyone else is doing it also, will the power companies replace the power they take/use from me as I will have to then buy it twice while only getting the small amount of power in comparison I would normally have used for myself. This is why they call it a scheme. I already paid for the power to the grid that they can’t supply due to their incapacity so they want it back, free of charge, to apply to everyone at which case they would have to take back more than they supplied for me to purchase to cover their shortage.
what a bunch of rube goldberg malarkey
are we all going to build iron smelters in our backyards a la chinese communists?
how about a power surge that blows everyone’s car battery?
maybe you will be required to buy a spare
So when you plug them in to charge, they might actually be discharging into the grid. Leaving you stranded.
