Parker

Summary

The aim of the Parker project was to validate that series-produced electric vehicles as part of a company fleet can support the power grid with V2G services. Ultimately supporting the use of renewable energy while earning money through grid services. The project utilized a number of contemporary electric vehicles and V2G DC chargers provided by its industrial partners and used them to carry out a number of tests and demonstrations in PowerLabDK - an experimental platform for power system research. Further, the project partnered with the world’s first commercial pilot (the Frederiksberg Forsyning V2G hub) where electric vehicles provided grid services. The project used the above assets to investigate three key topics: grid applications, grid readiness as well as scalability and replicability.
