Electric Vehicle Charging

Emotions around V2G

I’m trying to understand the emotions around V2G (aka bi-directional charging). That’s not a typo. I wonder how would bi-directional charging make vehicle operators feel. Will cost savings override range anxiety? As an engineer, this question takes me into an area where I’m not well versed, but as an entrepreneur focused on EV Smart Charge …
