The OVO Energy V2G Project (Project Sciurus) is one of the largest domestic vehicle-to-grid trials in the world. OVO Energy provided Nissan EV drivers with V2G hardware made by Indra, and installed it in their homes. The chargers are intelligently optimised by the Kaluza Flex platform to export energy back to the grid when it's needed most. Customers are paid for their exports to the grid, enabling many of them to drive their EV effectively for free as a result of using their V2G charger.
