News: Hyundai is committed to V2X


In addition to stabilizing the power grid, the energy stored in electric vehicles also helps to control energy demand during peak times. Hyundai currently operates two V2X pilots in the Netherlands and Germany and Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 modified V2G technology.


By connecting electric vehicles to the power grid, the energy environment can change drastically. Not only do electric car owners with V2G technology have the opportunity to actively contribute to the consolidation of the local power grid, V2G can also make a significant contribution to sustainable energy supply.

The power grid provides energy from renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind, directly to consumers. Thanks to V2G, this sustainable energy can be stored in electric vehicles, and only returned to the power grid when sustainable energy cannot be generated, for example at night, or when there is no wind, or peak times.

To use V2G, an electric vehicle must have the appropriate hardware, including a two-dimensional charger that allows electricity to enter and exit the battery pack. The car must also have proper programming. Since only a certain percentage of battery capacity is used to drive, the remaining stored energy can be returned to the energy grid.
