Nissan Announced that it will soon begin validation testing of the energy management system established in F. Namie. This move includes Nissan’s Ambition 2030 vision, which aims to support the production of energy used by the company in the region and become carbon-neutral.

Energy management systems utilize autonomous control systems that generate a percentage of renewable energy to charge an electric vehicle by sending and receiving electricity to and from the electric vehicle.

Nissan explained that two important issues facing renewable energy are fluctuations in power generation due to weather conditions and imbalances in electricity supply and demand. Therefore, by combining high-capacity EV batteries with a system that charges and discharges them independently, renewable energy can be used more effectively. It also helps stabilize the grid.

The company said the distributed control system will allow five electric vehicles in the town to be charged or discharged based on the amount of electricity generated by solar, wind and hydrogen fuel cells and the power demand of the town’s commercial facilities. .. To determine the proper timing to charge and discharge Namie EV, the system considers battery condition and usage pattern. Automakers shared that the system could reduce peak electricity consumption in commercial facilities and reduce electricity costs.

Last month, it was reported that automakers are also aiming to partner with Japanese local governments to promote the Net Zero goal. Bloomberg reports that the company has partnered with trading giant Sumitomo Corporation to work with local governments in Japan to eliminate carbon. The two companies will work with local governments to bring EVs, electricity from renewable energy sources, and car-sharing systems to residents and local businesses to reduce emissions in various segments, especially in the mobility sector.
