Within the smart grid - smart buildings context, electric vehicles (EVs) require an increasing consideration, not only for the challenges they create, but also for their potential for grid support. In office buildings, a high number of EVs is most likely to park for a longe period. Studies have shown that if the EVs are allowed to charge without control it will not only have negative impact on building energy management but also on the distribution grid. This paper presents a charging method to exploit flexibility of EVs in the built environment context, thus enabling the vehicle to building (V2B) concept. The proposed method enables z controlled charging schemes of EVs to bring benefit to building energy system and the distribution grid.
