This paper describes an intelligent Vehicle to Grid (iV2G) Charging Platform for plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles that can be used at user’s home, and which includes a mobile control system. The car drivers can control remotely the charging or discharging process through a mobile communication device. This mobile communication device can also gather information about charging places, their availability and the best road paths to reach them, as well as energy market prices, informing the best periods to charge the car regarding the energy costs.
