Audi e-gas plant qualified to participate in balancing market to stabilize grid

Green Car Congress

The Audi e-gas plant in the city of Werlte in Lower Saxony ( earlier post ) produces CO 2 neutral-fuel (synthetic methane from water, renewable electricity and CO 2 ); it now also contributes toward stabilizing the public power grid. It is therefore important to have flexibly available consumers such as the Audi e-gas plant to buffer load peaks and thereby stabilize energy grids. This has resulted in the plant being accepted under the direction of grid operator Tennet TSO GmbH.

Ricardo, National Grid study explores market potential for grid-balancing services for plug-in vehicles

Green Car Congress

A new study by Ricardo and National Grid examining the market potential for grid balancing services provided by a future fleet of plug-in vehicles (PIVs) found that demand-side management services provide only a modest financial benefit but at zero cost, while more robust vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services offer potentially attractive returns, but with likelihood of high investment and limited market. To achieve this, grid operators look to balancing services.
