In this fast-changing world, Electric Vehicle (EV) is a giant leap in the world of transportation. In comparison with fossil fuel powered vehicles, EVs are more efficient, silent, emit less pollution while in use and they act as mobile power banks, these makes them a better alternative. This in turn can be used for Vehicle to Home (V2H) and Vehicle to Grid (V2G) operations using IoT as a platform to achieve control and monitoring, Nissan Leaf is considered as the EV in this research. In this research, Mozilla IoT is used as the IoT platform to implement V2H and V2G concepts. The research was divided into four phases. In the first phase, the dynamic modelling of solar energy system with V2H concept is implemented. The second phase involves the dynamic modelling of a solar energy system with V2G concept. The third phase involves the design of an IoT based solar energy system with V2H concept. The fourth phase demonstrates the hardware modelling of the V2H and V2G system using Mozilla IoT. The implemented prototype is executed in eight major modes. The results show that the developed system performs accurately and could serve as a viable option along with interoperability and security for the V2H and V2G implementations.
