A very interesting article, for me in particular the discussion around V2G capabilities and battery degradation. It seems there is more optimism that V2G services will not have such a negative impact on battery performance and warranty. The point being made the more EV's connected, the less discharge required per battery.
The other stand out thing of course is the continued speed of development, and significant investment from all major car manufacturers. New mobility is here, and with so many reports on the negative impact of pollution and diesel on both physical and mental health, it can't role out soon enough.
Automakers have been hesitant to support two-way power flow, citing concerns over the possible degradation of the battery, which could create warranty issues and potentially make the battery less safe. But Asami says things have changed. “Before we had the concern about the degradation of the battery -- that’s why we had to limit the amount of energy we could pull out of the vehicle,” he said. “But year by year this durability is being improved.” “We don’t have to pull out all of the energy,” he added. “Instead, as we have more and more electric vehicles, it really makes sense to pull a small portion of energy from the electric vehicle battery capacity to support peak power for a building needs, which we are already doing.”
