Our new room at the Glenorchy Library was quite good, a good size with convenient facilities. Just don't park in the reserved spaces!

Our guest speaker at this meeting was Laura Jones from the Australian National University, with a presentation on bidirectional charging (vehicle to grid) technology.
Bidirectional charging is a promising technology that would allow an EV to use its battery to charge as well as discharge. This could enable parked vehicles to provide valuable energy services much like a home battery. This presentation will summarise our experiences in delivering Australia’s first major bidirectional charging project: Realising Electric Vehicle To Grid Services. It will discuss the current state of bidirectional charging, summarise the project’s findings, and relate them to the current state of play in Australia.
