Demonstration of energy management using EVs, battery and photovoltaic power generation, etc.

Hokuriku Electric Power Company

Outline

  • Understanding the status of solar power generation and the amount of electricity used at home, we remotely control the charging and discharging of electric vehicles and storage batteries, and the operation of EcoCute. It also contributes to the utilization of renewable energy by optimally using electricity without the customer's awareness.

Description

Establishment of remote control technology and know-how for the operation of energy combined with such as EV, battery and photovoltaic power generation

1 Optimal remote control of electricity usage at home

  • We installed three electric vehicles, storage batteries, solar power generation, etc. in our company house (Okui Town, Toyama City).
  • Using EMS (Energy Management System), we will establish the technology and know-how to optimally control each device while understanding the usage status of electricity.

2 Response to disaster

  • Establishment of technology and know-how that enable users to use electricity constantly by supplying from EV, battery and photovoltaic power generation even in case of power failure

3 Response to introduction of EV

  • Looking to the introduction of several EVs to one home, establishment of technology and know-how that enable users to avoid rising their contract demand by remote control of the operation of energy combined with such as EV, battery and photovoltaic power generation
  • In order to apply the recently popular car sharing mechanism to electric vehicles, we will understand the amount of charge and discharge and the timing required for operation.
  • At the same time, we will conduct a survey of car sharing user needs in the demonstration.
