Kochi: The owner of an electric car will be able to meet household power needs from the vehicle itself based on a technology developed by Nissan, the Japanese auto giant.

It plans to introduce the new ‘Leaf’ electric cars in the Indian market next year and is on the look-out for local partners for collaboration on the application of its latest ‘Vehicle-to-Home’ technology (V2H) in the state.

 

The technology allows electric vehicles to not only receive power but also store it and send it back to the source.

The ‘Leaf’ could be an alternative to a home battery system like inverter. Household power can be supplied from ‘Leaf’ lithium-ion battery (40 kWh) of the car by installing a power control system connected to the household’s distribution board. The vehicles can also be charged from the household power supply at night (lean usage period).

The PCS handles the electrical conversion and controls the amount of power supply.

Briefing on the proposed application of its bidirectional vehicle charging system in the country, Nissan spokesperson told this newspaper that the car maker was looking for local partners to make the technology application possible in the daily lives of the local population besides services like accessible plugging stations.

“Any electric car maker can use this technology. But we want it to be applied in the real lives of Indian population. We can provide our experience but the technology has to be made suitable for local conditions. For this, we’re holding talks with academic organisations like IITs,” Nakamura said on the sidelines of the three-day international conference on emerging technologies ‘TENCON-2019’ being held here.

“The state government is particularly keen on the use of electricity and solar power to replace fossil fuel energy resources. We want to give it a push and are looking to leverage the technology here,” the official said.
