VIRTA V2G SERVICES MAKE YOUR POWER COMPANY LOOK COOL
Elias Pöyry, the CBO and Deputy CEO of EV charging company Virta LTD had a keynote speech of the topic “V2G is providing full benefit for e-mobility” at the European Utility Week in Paris on Tuesday.
Pöyry was telling about Virta smart electric vehicle platform that enables running EV charging business of any size, anywhere in the world, with customer own brand and the new possibilities that Virta V2G offers to the drivers and energy companies.
Pöyry mentioned that 65 % the world emission are produced by the energy and transport sector and EV’s that are basically big batteries on wheels, are significantly enabling reducing emissions in both segments.
Virta believes in electrifying everything with zero carbon power and that there are 3 pillars in solving the climate change – energy efficiency, decarbonation of electricity production and electrification of energy consumption. By 2030 there will be more than 100 million electric vehicles globally and most of the battery capacity will be in electric vehicles, that will be one of the most important accelerators of decarbonation in Europe.
The market offers huge possibilities for the power companies and the role of EV charging is directly dependent on their willingness to invest ahead of the market. Different business models are viable in different stages of market maturity - starting as projects, developing to as-a-service and transaction-based business models.
