Report and study

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and Electric School Buses

Published on 

In a context where power outages are called to increase alongside extreme climate events, the use of electric school buses capable of providing energy back to the grid seems more relevant than ever. Imagine a future where school buses not only transport our children, but also the electricity that powers our buildings. This is now a reality with the participation of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology for electric school buses.

In September 2023, the Canadian Electric School Bus Alliance (CESBA), coordinated by Équiterre and Green Communities Canada, unveiled the report Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Electric School Buses. Prepared by Dunsky Energy + Climate, this report explores V2G technology, its services and application to electric school buses.

  • Learn more about V2G technology and its services for public utilities and customers;

  • Discover why electric school buses are well-suited for V2G participation and how much revenue per bus could be generated;

  • Understand the limitations of V2G and on-going pilot projects.
