E-mobility is becoming the mobility of the future. There are already e-charging stations throughout Switzerland, and from logistics to private households, more and more people are turning to electric vehicles. The problem: The increasing use of electric vehicles could overload the power grid. Interestingly, e-mobility provides the solution to this problem right away: Bi-directional charging. At our lecture series at the Power Days Zurich 2022, industry experts will report on the new possibilities and how electric vehicles could revolutionize not only mobility but also energy supply thanks to this technology and a mobile Internet connection.

The Idea

Thanks to powerful batteries in many electric vehicles, they are not only able to consume energy, but also to store it and release it again when needed. This creates the opportunity to feed energy directly into the supply network via the charging stations and thus relieve the load on the grid. Many vehicles are parked around most of the time. During these times, electric vehicles could be used as temporary balancing storage. The potential is huge and implementation is shaping up.
