This paper outlines the challenges faced during the implementation of a Vehicle-2-Grid set-up from the design phase, through project planning, application for permits and clearances, procurement of equipment and installation. It is based on the experience of designing a living lab at the Green Village in TU Delft, the Netherlands. Desk research and active collection of information from various stakeholders was performed to outline the current state of the technology and the barriers for various stakeholders. It is the aim of this work to provide insight into the subsequent design of V2G systems for future research and pilot projects.
