The Smart Vehicle-to-Home System transforms Electric Vehicle (EV) batteries into energy storage devices for households. With the V2H system, electrical power stored in the EV batteries can be transferred to households in peak hours or when electricity is at a high price. It helps save electricity costs and alleviate the high electricity demand in peak hours.
The growth of EV market has created huge demand for charging and huge load for power grid.
