A panel will address the integration of EVs with Solar, Batteries & the Grid for home and local grid resilience
-- Live demo of how to power the home with Vehicle 2 Home (V2H) technology using his Chevy Bolt by long time EV expert and advocate Will Beckett
-- Battery storage from rooftop solar to power the home during grid shutdown or after the sun stops shining by professional solar guy Michael Mora
-- EV and V2G Pioneer Tom Gage will present on what already exists with Vehicle 2 Grid (V2G), the future as a resource for local grid resilience, and the challenges
-- Dr. Jose Bueno-Torres will explain the how and rationale for aggregating EVs and battery storage for a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) to relieve the grid's duck curve and fossil fueled peaker plants with local, renewable grid resilience
-- Q & A will follow
These presentations represent future steps EV and solar battery owners will take to Kick Gas and be part of the transition to local, national & global resilience with renewable energy!
