“However, during my conversation with Alfaro, he told us that he was in communication with a variety of automakers and he sounded hopeful, if not confident, that the current dominant DC standard, the Combo plug, would soon be capable of bi-directional power flow as well.”As far as I’m aware these are CHAdeMO only.
Good to know. I was told not for at least 5 years by a manufacturer here in the UK who are developing a V2G wall. box for CCS. Was researching my options before getting my wall box installed.
Yeah, so I was a bit skeptical when I initially saw that they said bi-directional and both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, as I was sure that it’s only possible with a CHADeMO, and even then I think only the Nissan Leaf and maybe Renault Cleo were able to... at least over here the V2G trials have only been possible with those two cars.I inquired about them and apparently they don't know of any car it can get power out of but would be a fast charger for home but don't why you'd want that at home.
I think it's possible with CCS but they did acknowledge that Tesla actively blocked it from happening. Using the car as a home battery would double the normal discharge/recharge cycles and likely double battery degradation over just car usage and it is the car usage that car mfg.s guarantee the battery.it’s only possible with a CHADeMO
