Description

In 1996, researchers at the University of Delaware began pioneering a unique approach to storing and utilizing renewable energy sources called Vehicle-To-Grid (V2G) power. The driving principle of V2G is that energy can be discharged from the lithium-ion batteries of electric vehicles (EVs) for consumption in the grid. Renewable energy sources need storage, and the growing market for electric vehicles presents a plentiful source of potential energy storage. V2G offers a mechanism to exploit these otherwise untapped storage resources for use in the grid. Nuvve is a global leader in commercial V2G solutions, which have the potential to improve the utilization and economic viability of renewable energy and electric vehicles. This project focuses on building a cross-platform mobile application through which individual EV owners can connect with V2G services offered by Charge Point Operators (CPOs). These CPOs could be anything from a shopping mall or apartment complex to an entire metropolitan area. By opting-in to V2G services while charging their vehicles, individual EV owners have the opportunity to earn money by providing power capacity and sending energy back and forth to regulate the grid, while CPOs can reduce costs and energy consumption by utilizing energy from EV batteries during peak hours. In addition to building an application to facilitate these activities, we have built a scalable and robust suite of cloud-hosted microservices to manage and coordinate Nuvve's users and services. Our mobile application relies heavily on these back-end microservices, and they have been designed with Nuvve's long-term goals in mind.
