Motivations to use vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging stations for electric vehicles, 2021
Results of a study conducted within the Horizon 2020 project, ebalance-plus: Energy balancing and resilience solutions to unlock flexibility and increase market options for distribution grid. The survey was conducted in December 2021 on a sample of 4,000 individuals in four countries: France, Italy, Denmark and Spain (1,000 in each). The survey was conducted in the form of a self-completed online questionnaire (computer-assisted web interview) and covered topics related to household electricity use, evaluation of the user interfaces of energy management devices and electric vehicle charging systems, evaluation of messages that build energy literacy, and evaluation of the V2G charging concept. The study sample comprised adults (mean age: 43) who are responsible for paying electric bills or purchasing electrical appliances for their homes, and who use smartphones daily. The sample was gender balanced and stratified by age, city size, region, and education level. This research is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No.864283.
