Syslab, which is part of PowerLabDK is a microgrid and a flexible intelligent energy laboratory which enables Parker to perform V2G tests. During the project meeting, the partners were able to follow live data from the Parker fleet as well as live video feed from Syslab the two other test facilities of Parker.

Inspirational presentations by other V2G projects

Besides discussing and providing input for current and future work in the project, three other projects were invited to present their development work in V2G. Here, Mattia Marinelli from DTU Elektro presented the Aces Project, which among other things aim to research how electric vehicles can contribute to balance the power system of the Danish Island Bornholm without inducing the local grid issues.

Paul Codani from Groupe PSA gave an insight to the Grid Motion Project and Bjoern Christensen from Nuvve, introduced the project INVENT.
