Charging ahead - Emerging tech for chargeable cars

Policy & Regulation

In this week’s episode of Autology, IHS Markit experts discuss how charging infrastructure is set to develop over the coming years.

This includes whether there are sufficient charging points to support electric and plug-in vehicles worldwide, and–importantly–can power grids handle the demand?

With new technologies such as bi-directionality coming to market, we also look into the benefits of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) capabilities for EV owners. Will it be worth their time discharging their vehicles for the sake of powering their homes?

And could V2G become compulsory should power grids struggle to provide energy?

Tune in to find out the answers, and much more!
