πŸ‘‰ One of the first cars on the market with V2G capability is the Nissan Motor Corporation LEAF, introduced in 2017. Now, 5 years lager, you could get the first Nissan approved V2G charger. Shows how complex ⏳ the space is to sort out the different aspects like commercial aspects, battery warranty and more.

πŸ‘‰ Teslas Power walls πŸ”‹ installed in Puerto Rico πŸ‡΅πŸ‡· powered 44.000 homes after a hurricane caused a grid-outage πŸ’¨. Impressive that close to 4% of households are equipped with Teslas Wall Boxes, which is just a fraction of the total market. So far the power walls are not connected to a virtual power plant but this might happen in the future.
