Enthusiasts: E-cars as a electricity memory: VW cooperates with network operator

Lindner considers longer usage of nuclear power due to increasing electricity requirements for required

 Lindner considers longer usage of nuclear power due to increasing electricity requirements for required Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) considers a longer use of nuclear power plants in view of the expected significantly higher electricity requirement. It can be expected "that in the coming months and possibly years, electricity will also be increasingly being heated with electricity because gas is so scarce," said Lindner on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the TÜV also considered feasible to restart three nuclear power plant laid out last year.

cheap charging with a high offer, back food for deficiency in the network: The VW energy service provider Elli and the Belgian network operator ELIA want to make the use of electric cars marketable.

Now both sides concluded an agreement that aims to establish electric vehicles as an integral part of the energy network in the medium term. Elia also brings the start-up Re.alto, as VW announced.

The proportion of renewable energies is to be further expanded. However, wind and solar power often fluctuate, so that phases of peak and substructure can occur on the network. Large memory in which hydrogen chemically "stored" excess energy should stabilize the electricity system. As a further option, the possible contribution of electric car batteries has been discussed for some time.

Tesla share: PG & E and SCE customers can earn money with Tesla Powerwalls

 Tesla share: PG & E and SCE customers can earn money with Tesla Powerwalls California's electricity supplier PG & E and SCE cooperate with Tesla to secure the power supply: If you have a Tesla, you can get the electricity from the wallbox for two US dollars per Sell ​​kWh. This is how the "largest virtual battery in the world" is to be created. © provided by Finanzen.net Andrew Burton/Getty Images • Households with Tesla Powerwall can feed the electricity from the Wallbox at peak times into the power grid • At the end of the season, the participants receive two US dol

If the cars are not on the road and, for example, are on the charging station overnight, you could - according to the idea - to put certain amounts into the network if necessary. With this “bidirectional” charging in two directions, e-car owners could also sell their own electricity. Conversely, charging your own vehicle can be cheaper in a certain situation.

The VW manager Elke Temme speaks of e-car batteries as a "mobile power bank". Elia boss Chris Peeters said: "We want to enable the growing number of electric vehicle users to load their vehicles and at the same time keep the electricity system in balance." The partners now want to develop a suitable market model.

cabinet decides on gas and electricity price brakes .
The Bundeskabinett has paved the way for the gas and electricity price brakes planned from next year. As the Federal Ministry of Economics announced on Friday afternoon, the two draft laws on the relief for energy customers have now overcome the next hurdle. Subsequently, the Bundestag and the Federal Council will decide the energy plants in December so that they can come into force as planned in the coming year.
