BEIJING -- Research is being conducted to commercialize a vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology in which electric vehicles are used as energy supply infrastructure. Link-U Tech, a Chinese company that focuses on the development and popularization of V2G systems in China, was founded last year by a research team led by Tsinghua University professor Ouyang Minggao.

Link-U Tech has accumulated large quantities of all-weather two-way charging data, mainly in batteries' two-way active control algorithms and two-way power electronics components. The company provides full-stack solutions combining algorithms, parts, facilities and platforms that suit different situations, such as battery heating in low temperature, microgrid systems and V2G.
