This is billed as a two-year trial. Given that some people have had their V2G for over a year and many are yet to be installed, what marks the start of the two years? Do we all get two years individually or is there some future cutoff for everyone?
- If the latter, when is that?
- What happens afterwards? We know we can “buy” the charger for £1 but will the app still work? Will V2G as a concept, die? etc etc…
We hear CCS will go bi-directional at some point. Are there any plans to test that?
The new Nissan Airya will have a CCS charge port but our sources claim the connector will be bi-directional. (Nissan, after all, virtually invented the V2X concept). Do you have any inside information about that?

We’ve confirmed that the 2 year trial period for the V2G charger started when your V2G unit was installed. Once you get to the end of your two years, you will be given the chance to buy the charger for £0.01, or we can remove it for you. The charger will continue to work in the same way after your two years if you take ownership of it: we plan to continue supporting the app until at least Jan 2023.
We hope that the majority of members will stay with OVO and our V2G propositions beyond the end of their 2 year trial, so that we can continue providing support to the grid together.
There have also been some questions about V2G as a concept and how OVO plans to develop this in the future. There are some open questions about future V2G technology, particularly around support for CCS V2G. We’re following this as it evolves to inform our future V2G offering.
