ABB V2G 11 kW Charger Is Key In Evolution Of E-Mobility

These bi-directional chargers could actually pay themselves back as they may cut EV ownership costs


  • V2G is for Vehicle-to-grid.

  • These intelligent chargers can return surplus power to the grid.

  • This type of technology is expected to grow exponentially.


ABB, a global technology company, will supply a number of European countries with brand-new 11 kW bi-directional charger kiosks. This move, and technology, will help solidify and increase the grid’s resilience helping all those who are connected.

These chargers, light and compact, are designed to deliver a quick charge but this is only half of their job. Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB’s global business for E-mobility Infrastructure Solutions said: “The development of this intelligent bi-directional charging solution will be key in enabling the next step in the evolution of our e-mobility ecosystem and represents a key milestone in ABB’s sustainability strategy.”

In fact, it’ll do more than just that as the chargers will enable EV drivers to send surplus power to the grid and get paid for it. According to ABB, they have the potential to generate up to 20€/EV/month. At the moment, few EVs are capable of supporting V2G technology however it is expected this feature will become commonplace within the next five years.

As ABB has a partnership with France’s DREEV, the French will be the first to get V2G chargers. Installations in the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, and Germany will follow.
