Japanese automaker Nissan, a key player in the electric vehicle (EV) transition, is set to introduce Nissan Energy Share in Japan next month, a pioneering energy management technology aimed at facilitating control over the charging and discharging of EV batteries.
Targeted primarily at companies, businesses, and municipal governments, Nissan Energy Share offers intelligent energy management control for both individual EVs and entire fleets, marking a significant advancement in the integration of EVs into broader energy systems.
According to Nissan, the launch of Nissan Energy Share underscores the multifaceted role of EV batteries, which extend beyond powering vehicles to directly supporting buildings and communities. Leveraging bidirectional charging technology, including vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) capabilities, the technology enables EVs to provide power to homes, supplement grid supply during peak demand periods, and serve as backup power sources in emergencies.
The innovative charge-discharge controller of Nissan Energy Share, connected to charging units, allows for predictive energy management by analyzing real-time data on EV battery status and building energy consumption. By autonomously determining optimal charging and discharging times, the technology facilitates energy load shifting and peak shaving without compromising EV performance or user comfort.
Furthermore, integration with solar panels enables users to directly utilize off-grid renewable energy, reducing reliance on grid power and promoting sustainability.
In addition to its technological components, Nissan Energy Share offers comprehensive support services, including equipment selection, installation assistance, and subsidy application guidance, ensuring seamless implementation for customers.
The introduction of Nissan Energy Share reflects Nissan's commitment to advancing the integration of EVs into energy ecosystems and driving sustainable mobility solutions.
