Nissan Motor has announced plans to launch Nissan Energy Share in Japan on March 1. The service features the company’s energy management technology that autonomously controls the charging and discharging of EV batteries.
The new service stems from Nissan’s research and field tests that focused on optimizing the autonomous management of EV battery charging.
Featuring a charge-discharge controller connected to charging or charge-and-discharge units, the system is designed to predict a vehicle’s energy use. According to Nissan, it obtains real-time information on a vehicle’s remaining charge and a building’s energy use and autonomously determines the optimal timing to charge and discharge.
When the system is connected to solar panels, users can directly consume off-grid renewable energy produced on-site.
