The wireless Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) energy management system is technology that maintains electricity supply balance and stabilizes the power grid, by connecting electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles wirelessly to the power grid, and utilizes electricity stored in their batteries according to electricity supply and demand. The system aims to help promoting use of renewable energy in regions where electricity supply is unstable, and to create new new business models.
Honda is currently collaborating with WiTricity, a U.S.-based venture corporation developing a system that enables wireless charging of vehicles (equipped with pads installed in the vehicle's underside) from the power grid (with pads embedded in parking spaces), and wireless power transfer technologies.
Honda is aiming to collaborate with energy-related companies, including aggregators and electric companies.
