Vehicle to Grid V2G is one of the pivotal technology that gives us ultimate control over energy and grid efficiency. The smart grid utilizes this technological advancement in developing a gridable vehicle ecosystem (battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in hybrids (PHEV), plug-in vehicle (PEV)) in its fullest operational possibilities. Leading to intertwined Smart Grid domains and operational networks with other Critical Infrastructures – Energy, Transportation, and Tele-communication. The presentation elaborates on the security and privacy challenges in the V2G network and its impact on grid resilience.

This talk focus on all primary components of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Vehicle-to-Home (V2H) infrastructure, applications and its security and privacy challenges and highlights for secure deployment options on

  • Transmission and distribution, substation automation model
  • Customer’s premise area network enablement – demand response, charging stations, and smart metering systems
  • Commercial and residential charging stations’infrastructure aiding integrated transport payment systems, 4G/LTE connectivity, roaming, and billing
  • Customer and vehicle identify
  • Regulatory Commitments


INTENDED AUDIENCE:  Grid operators; EV owners; Charging stations and advanced metering system managed offerers; Service Providers offering grid services; Advanced protection, transmission and substation automation teams; and Vehicle manufacturers
