The V2G Charger stores electricity in your Nissan LEAF battery when it’s cheaper and more likely to have been produced by renewable sources, then sells energy back to the grid when it’s in demand, which might even save you enough to charge your car for free.
The grid is the UK’s energy network, connecting millions of homes to thermal power stations and renewable energy sources. And it’s getting greener. But green energy is intermittent by nature. We can’t switch it on when demand is high. And without flexibility, adding more renewables to the grid is complicated and expensive.
For a flexible, balanced grid, we need more control and that starts on your driveway.
Your charger will handle most of the clever stuff itself – all you need to do is tell the Kaluza web-app when you need your car to be ready and a minimum charge level. Then, just plug in your car when you get home. The Kaluza intelligent energy platform will then decide when to charge your battery and when to export to the grid – all while having your car ready for when you need it.
