Europe: Intersolar Europe 2012: Combining solar power and e-mobility

The topic of e-mobility will take center stage for the first time at Intersolar Europe 2012 with the PV and E-Mobility special exhibit unveiling mobile storage technologies and showcasing combinations of PV carports, charging stations and electric vehicles.

In addition to presenting solutions individually, Intersolar Europe, 13-15 June, shows the ways in which they work together, providing information on how electricity storage and grid integration can be combined to ensure solar power is used effectively by those that generate it. The program also provides the opportunity to take an electric vehicle for a test drive in the outdoor exhibition area of Messe München, allowing visitors to experience the future of mobility first hand.

Electric vehicles play a role in our future energy supply, thanks to their batteries storing electricity, which in turn stabilizes the grid. Intelligent control technology charges the batteries when sufficient cheap power is available. At peak times, when electricity demand is high among grid users, the stored power can be used as a short-term backup. As private vehicles spend 90% of their time parked and not in use, this opens up enormous potential to compensate for peaks in demand.
