"The batterycapacity in affordable electric cars will tripple in the near future. By the end of 2016 several large car brands will be presenting electric cars that can drive at least 300 km on a single battery charge. That’s enough energy storage to provide an average Dutch household with electricity for more than a week.
GE, Vidyn, LomboXnet, LastMile Solutions, the City of Utrecht, the Economic Board Utrecht and Stedin have formed a consortium to develop the world’s first solar-controlled, bi-directional, compact charging station for electric cars. This smart charging station for solar energy, can both charge and discharge electric cars and thus transform car batteries to a storage system to supply homes with renewable power for 24-hours a day.
The smart charging stations are an essential element in a new, local and sustainable energy system. Thanks to open standards it can be applied to all cars, everywhere.
