Nissan explained that the two key problems faced by renewable energy are fluctuations in power generation caused by weather conditions and an imbalance in electricity supply and demand. Therefore, combining large-capacity EV batteries with a system that independently charges and discharges them will allow renewable energy to be used more effectively. It will help in stabilising the grid as well.

The company conveyed that its decentralised control system will enable the town’s five electric vehicles to be charged or discharged based on the amount of electricity generated by solar, wind and hydrogen fuel cells, and the electricity demand of the town’s commercial facility. To determine the appropriate timing for recharging and discharging Namie’s EVs, the system will consider their battery status and usage patterns. The automaker shared that the system may lower the peak power consumption of the commercial facility reducing electricity costs.
