FCA to trial V2G with future Fiat e-500 in Italy

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has signed a memorandum of understanding with Italian power supplier Terna to create an innovative technology laboratory which will allow trials on the performances and capacities of electric cars to support the flexibility and stabilisation of the electricity grid, and their one-way and two-way interaction with the grid via a dedicated charging infrastructure.

Feasibility studies will also be launched for an experimental demonstration fleet of electric cars connected to the grid via a V2G infrastructure, to be built in an area inside the FCA Mirafiori industrial complex. Mirafiori is where FCA will build the upcoming electric Fiat 500.
