The development of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology for electric vehicles (EVs) enables prosumers to incorporate other energy storages and participate in largescale bidirectional energy trading. However, the mobility of EVs makes it significantly different from any other conventional storage. For a mass-penetration of EVs, uncoordinated planning and random distribution of V2G may result in power grid instability and power quality degradation. Therefore, a real-time coordinated and automated V2G system in a distributed way is essential for effective energy management. Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication enabling bidirectional information flow between EVs and other power system components is a key element to mitigate challenges associated with their grid integration and manage all parties autonomously. M2M technology assists in improving energy efficiency and reducing any potential risk of instability in power systems. In this chapter, an indepth study of an M2M communication-based coordinated management of EVs is presented. It includes a step-by-step description and practical implementation process of the data logging system, data transmission, and its automatic processing mechanism at the server. Additionally, the scalability issue for EV M2M communication under a 4G Long Term Evolution transceiver base station is extensively examined. Various numerical simulations with and without radio network scheduling are also presented to provide a detailed understanding of this scalability issue, taken into consideration communication delays and blocking rate.
