It may be possible to stabilise the grid with electric BMWs: The biggest grid conductor in the Netherlands & Germany TenneT has begun a pilot study project to find the possibility of electric vehicles (EVs) in helping out grid stability.

Almost 20 BMW i3 EVs were given to private customers as well as an additional 30 cars will be going to commercial fleet users within the next few weeks.

The tests will connect the vehicles with charging infrastructure & grids to support the use of renewable energy flows and help the security of supply.

The batteries in the vehicles will be transformed into energy storage units to distribute electricity to the grid when required.

TenneT Chief Operating Officer Tim Meyerjürgens stated: “We are interested in finding new ways to flexibly control renewable electricity production, which is highly dependent on the weather & thus relieve the burden on the electricity grid.

“Intelligent charging control of EVs can complement grid expansion & come to be one of the building blocks of the energy transition.”
