Abstract

With the proliferation of electric vehicles, smart charging and discharging technologies, such as vehicle-to-grid (V2G), are playing an increasingly important role. V2G can help improve grid efficiency, reduce greenhouse emissions, and help energy systems increase the share of volatile renewable energy sources. However, for the successful implementation of such technologies, active participation of the vehicle users is critical. So far, literature has mainly focused on the technical aspects of V2G, neglecting the human component., this paper follows a twofold approach. First, we conduct a systematic review of 458 articles on V2G. Second, we draw on the self-determination theory to deepen our understanding of the motivational drivers for adopting or paying for V2G services and how they can be strengthened. Our findings indicate that financial and environmental benefits are important drivers for V2G adoption. Additionally, clear policies, awareness programs, and developed infrastructure are essential for the widespread adoption of V2G systems.

Understanding Vehicle-to-Grid User Engagement using Self-Determination Theory

With the proliferation of electric vehicles, smart charging and discharging technologies, such as vehicle-to-grid (V2G), are playing an increasingly important role. V2G can help improve grid efficiency, reduce greenhouse emissions, and help energy systems increase the share of volatile renewable energy sources. However, for the successful implementation of such technologies, active participation of the vehicle users is critical. So far, literature has mainly focused on the technical aspects of V2G, neglecting the human component., this paper follows a twofold approach. First, we conduct a systematic review of 458 articles on V2G. Second, we draw on the self-determination theory to deepen our understanding of the motivational drivers for adopting or paying for V2G services and how they can be strengthened. Our findings indicate that financial and environmental benefits are important drivers for V2G adoption. Additionally, clear policies, awareness programs, and developed infrastructure are essential for the widespread adoption of V2G systems.
