Nissan Technical Centre in the UK installs vehicle-to-grid tech

0

The Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTCE) in Cranfield, UK, has become the first Nissan entity in the company’s network of European facilities to install vehicle-to-grid technology.

Developed by Nissan in partnership with energy provider Enel, eight V2G chargers have been installed at the site and will be available for all NTCE employees to use. The V2G chargers work with Nissan’s electric vehicles to provide an intelligent energy management system capable of both charging the vehicles and allowing the cars to give stored energy from the vehicle’s battery back to the grid to help stabilise demand.

Francisco Carranza, director of energy services, Nissan Europe, said, “Nissan has always been at the forefront of EV technology development and we’re excited to be using our expertise to help change the way people consume energy. Through the integration of Nissan EVs we can help shape a society whose energy use is sustainable, efficient and affordable. It could change the rules of the game and make energy cheaper for everyone.”
