Benedikt Tepe studied electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University with a focus on energy technology. After bachelor and master theses in the field of battery storage technology and electric vehicles, he started his PhD at the Chair of Electrical Energy Storage Technology at the Technical University of Munich in 2019. His PhD focuses on the areas of stationary and mobile storage applications and in particular on the topic of vehicle-to-grid (V2G). His scientific publications include storage load profiles of battery storage systems in various stationary applications on the one hand and on optimized commercial EV pools for the provision of frequency containment reserve and arbitrage trading on the other hand.

Electric vehicles are a great solution when it comes to supporting the energy grid and including more sustainable energy. Electric vehicles could feed energy back into the grid at peak times, preventing grid congestion, balancing energy markets and preventing the use of polluting energy sources. This concept, which could support the energy transition, is called bidirectional charging. This session will be discussing some of the latest developments in bidirectional charging, presenting results from pilot projects and looking at barriers to scaling bidirectional charging.
