Hi @Jukebox - as @Transparent has said, a bit more clarity would be great!

You can use V2G alongside a home battery. However, the V2G unit will only export power from your car battery, not from your home battery.

Hi @Jukebox - I think I'll need you to clarify the question first please!

Are you considering whether the concept of V2G could used to store energy within a fixed storage battery rather than an electric vehicle?

Or are you thinking about using OVO's V2G charger unit to take stored charge from a battery within your home and transfer it to an EV instead of drawing the power from the National Grid?
