For electrical power industry, Smart Grid (SG) is one of the hot topics in national news and professional conferences from last few years. Its success is depending on the customer need, which is measured in terms of reliability. But in present SG systems, there is always an energy scheduling problem for source and the demand side, as electrical energy demand is growing rapidly. This gives an alarming situation not only for providing sustainable energy but also preservation of environment worldwide. Therefore, in this paper, the vision for future SG is further articulated by Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) implementation, so that monitoring and controlling of that electrical power will be possible. Also, the Electric Vehicle (EV) has become integral part of the grid operation. This offers an opportunity to utilize EV’s stored energy, when they are in idle (parking) condition means if demand need is low and sending power back to the grid if demand need is high. This way, flaw less and error less continuous supply is imaginable for the consumers. To get the maximum benefit of this V2G technology, it is enforced to merge the complementary strengths of the EV’s and needs of the power grid. This paper will also shed some light on economic impact, advantages and scope of V2G technology.
