For the first time in Canada, Nissan Canada and PowerStream proceed with the demonstration of the system to recharge the Nissan LEAF based on the exchange of energy between the vehicle and the house
The V2H technology presented by Nissan / PowerStream aimed at creating a bidirectional communication between the local utility companies, homes and cars in an effort to promote a sustainable lifestyle.
Nissan and its strategic partner, PowerStream, opened a new chapter of history by presenting an interactive exhibition by the demonstration of the integration of electric cars - like the Nissan LEAF - has the power houses using the latest energy intelligent network technologies. The exhibition in question, which is the first live demonstration of V2H technology in Canada, was held at Georgian College in Barrie. The system V2H acronym meaning "Vehicle to Home" allows the use in a house the stored energy in the battery of an electric vehicle.
When it is fully charged, the lithium-ion 24 kW Nissan LEAF is able to supply enough electricity for a whole day at an average Canadian household. This is also the use of a battery vehicle which confers a capacity and exceptional reliability as the power supply system based on the exchange of energy between the LEAF and home. This system creates an ever-increasing interest, which is based on the fact that it is a new form of infrastructure, but also on the principle that promotes energy saving and the use of other sources of energy. For example, by cutting the electrical network to peak consumption hours, a household would contribute significantly to the stability of the energy supply.
"We play a leading role on a global scale in the development and sale of electric vehicles and, as such, we know that it is crucial to establish partnerships with companies like PowerStream to promote The use of this technology and get new customers, "stated Allen Childs, President of Nissan Canada. "The V2H system, which was presented at the Canadian premiere public today, will promote further progress and collaboration in the automotive industry of the future. This system will contribute to create connections in the literal sense, such as those that exist between vehicles, infrastructure, Internet and national power grid, as well as links and relationships between engineers who are working to develop a vehicle technology next generation. "
The presentation of the system V2H Nissan / PowerStream demonstrates some advanced technical capabilities of the future smart network and home automation, including:
direct communication with the vehicle electric utility or energy manager of a residence to facilitate the management of electricity consumption;
the use of the electric vehicle as a source of backup power in case of electricity failure;
axes scenarios on the reaction to changes in the demand for electricity depending on the time, which was intended for example to ensure that devices like the refrigerator, washer-dryer and electric vehicle charger react to the change the price of electricity by time of day.
The announcement comes 10 months after that PowerStream, the second municipal electricity distribution company in Ontario importance, became the first company in Canada to take delivery of the fully electric Nissan LEAF.
"The collaboration between Nissan and PowerStream testifies major advances that are being made in the technology. It also demonstrates that two leaders of the sector can work together in the interest of consumers, "argues Frank Scarpitti, PowerStream Chairman of the Board and Mayor of the Town of Markham. "The demonstration of the system PowerStream / Nissan proves that intelligent connections between the power grid, the house and the car can really help us improve the way to manage and consume energy, and maintain.
