The EV-PV project aims to create an electric vehicle charging infrastructure in workplace using solar panels. The focus is to reduce the EV charging power demand on the grid by locally producing the power in a ‘green’ manner through solar panels. The EV battery doubles up as an energy storage mechanism for the PV system. An integrated power converter with a smart energy management system would connect the electric vehicle, solar panels & grid and provide for both dynamic charging of EV and V2G (vehicle-togrid) possibility in a safe and reliable manner.
