A lot of electricity is lost due to missing storage options. VW wants to secure a piece from the market from 2022, other corporations are already on.Every year, 6,500 Gigawatt hours Storm lost, because there are no sufficient storage capacities, so vw. 2.7 million purely battery powered electric cars could thus drive a year according to the Group. In this way, Volkswagen sees a new business model: the Group in the future can sell storage capacity in the future, car owners should receive a compensation compensation. . However, there is still a lack of some basics, including cars that dominate the bidirectional store.
at VW in trial, Hyundai and Nissan are already
VW indicates to equip all vehicles on thewith this function from 2022. The first models of the platform, namely and , do not control the output of power yet. The electric cars of Nissan have been standard as standard bidirectional since 2013. However, according to the manufacturer, it lacks the charging stations on relevant capabilities. The vehicles of are also equipped for bidirectional loading. Both the , which appears in the summer, as well as the are able to restore electricity as standard.

Vehicle-to-Grid could cushion current tips
When power supply via electric cars, one distinguishes between "Vehicle to Home" (V2H), ie feed into the local building network, and "Vehicle to Grid" (V2G). The latter offers the possibility to load current peaks into the vehicles and to return to the public network when needed. In addition to the bidirectional capabilities of the cars you need the right communication between the charging stations and the network - for example via so-called smart meters. In addition to control technology, regulars are still missing. Overall, you speak of Smart Grid, an intelligent power grid.Autoconzerne Research on feed-in options
TheVW wants to monetize storage capacities has built a pilot plant in Turin for the currently world's largest V2G project. BMW participates in a research project under the direction of the German Aerospace Center to explore how electric cars can stabilize the electricity grid with bidirectional charging and intelligent charging management. Audi tests with the power control company Hager Group possibilities to cushion via power peaks of PV systems. In parallel, other actors work on appropriate solutions; From energy producers to car sharing providers up to the .
VW wants to take over the coordination of the electricity tax. Thus, the Group could earn money with the storage capacities of its customers. These are to receive a compense compensation. "This creates a situation of which everyone involved would benefit," says VW Executive Board Thomas Ulbrich. His focus: remain unused renewable energy and can be fed into the power grid. Cars are often enough "stand" and could have other benefits. VW now start to build the new energy storage.
