Audi has announced that is is launching a pilot project for its Audi Smart Energy Network. the project is being launched in the Ingolstadt area and the Zurich region in conjunction with the company’s partners.
The project combines home energy storage, solar power and charging of electric vehicles, according to Audi these three elements create a virtual power plant and a smart grid.
“We are looking at electric mobility in the context of an overall energy supply system that is increasingly based on renewables. We are playing a pioneering role with the prequalification of the balancing-power market – enabling producers to feed power into the grid, as part of the pilot project. That is now for the first time also possible down at the level of individual households, which helps balance the entire power grid,” remarked Dr. Hagen Seifert, Head of Sustainable Product Concepts at Audi.
