vehicle-to-grid Station

In a landmark development for India’s sustainable energy and transportation sectors, BSES Rajdhani Power Limited (BRPL) has forged a strategic alliance with Sheru, a trailblazer in energy software solutions, to launch the nation’s first vehicle-to-grid (V2G) station. This innovative project is set to redefine the electric vehicle (EV) ecosystem by introducing swappable batteries, thereby advancing green mobility and enhancing the resilience of the power grid.

Sheru, known for its pioneering energy solutions, brings to the table its proprietary bidirectional battery-swapping technology.

This technology is a cornerstone of the V2G station, designed to serve a wide array of electric vehicles including two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and rickshaws. By offering interchangeable batteries, Sheru’s solution not only facilitates seamless mobility for EVs but also aids BRPL in managing its energy supply more efficiently, particularly during peak demand times.

Shikhar Sharma, Sheru’s Chief Operating Officer, emphasized the transformative potential of their collaboration with BRPL, stating, “Our partnership is a leap forward in integrating sustainable, renewable energy into the power grid 24/7.” He pointed out the economic and environmental advantages of leveraging EVs’ unused battery capacity. This innovative approach addresses the high costs associated with standalone battery storage, providing a cost-effective solution for BSES and creating new revenue opportunities for EV and battery owners.

A spokesperson from BRPL elaborated on the benefits of this collaboration, explaining how the distributed energy resources of Sheru’s swapping stations could bolster the grid during peak usage periods. By synchronizing battery charging with the availability of renewable energy or during low-demand periods, BRPL and Sheru are pioneering a sustainable model for EV charging infrastructure.

Sheru’s V2G solution represents a significant leap in smart energy management, enabling not just the storage and supply of green energy but also contributing to the stabilization of the grid. This system allows electric vehicles to act as mobile power sources, capable of feeding energy back into the grid when demand outstrips supply, thereby smoothing out fluctuations and ensuring a more reliable power supply.

This groundbreaking initiative between BRPL and Sheru marks a pivotal moment in India’s push towards a more sustainable and resilient energy ecosystem. It exemplifies how innovative technologies and collaborative efforts can pave the way for significant advancements in both the energy and mobility sectors, steering the country closer to its green future goals.
