Within the Parker project, DTU is leading the testing of the Vehicle to Grid technology, which will enable electric cars to supply power to the grid. The technology has the potential to transform the electric car into an alternative power source that can support the grid with power as well as provide several services of a more technical nature.
For more information, please see the original press release.

Join SIRFN/ELECTRA Workshop “Testing and Research Infrastructure for Future Power Grids” at IRED in Niagara Falls (CA) on 24 October, 2016
ISGAN Annex 5: SIRFN and ELECTRA FP7 European project join forces to hold a full-day workshop Testing and Research Infrastructure for Future Power Grids as a side-event at the 7th International Conference in Integration of Renewable and Distributed Energy Resources (IRED 2016) on 24-28 October, 2016, in Niagara Falls (CA).
The workshop will give an overview of the current research infrastructures (RI) involved in ELECTRA and SIRFN activities and address RI needs for solving specific issues related to future decentralised grid controls, future power system testing, grid flexibility and advanced DER interoperability. The workshop aims to clarify the requirements for future RI development and invites all power sector stakeholders to take part in the discussions and share their experience, ideas and knowledge.
The full agenda for the workshop is available here.
You can register for the workshop via the registration for IRED .
