Fermata Energy is pioneering Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) systems. Our technology uses the battery capacity in parked electric vehicles (EVs) to provide services that make the electric grid run more efficiently and save customers money on their electric bills.

We’re at an inflection point in history with electric utilities using more green energy (wind and solar) and vehicle manufacturers projecting the rapid transition of all internal combustion vehicle sales to all electric over the next decade. Utilities need grid scale energy storage to smooth out intermittent generation and manage peak load. Parked EV batteries are the energy storage asset best positioned to provide the massive amount of energy storage required. Fermata Energy is the company with V2G sites up and running now, earning or saving customers money now and working to scale up deployments as fast as possible.

Our Operations team helps assess potential opportunities for V2G projects, site selection and scoping for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) installations, project registration and set-up, interconnection, installation, commissioning, ongoing performance, and enables successful customer relationships.
