Mitsubishi is setting up a charging network at its dealerships in Japan, which will not only receive renewable energy via solar panels, but will also stabilize and support the local electrical grid – even in the case of a natural disaster or power shortages.
28 Mitsubishi dealers have already been fitted with solar power modules and have the capacity to charge batteries and receive power over a vehicle-to-building charging system in cases of emergency.
The new so-called Hyper Energy Station by Omiya went into operation this week in Saitama City and was also supplied with its own batteries to support the local electrical grid. By 2020 a total of 200 dealerships are planned to have integrated the V2G energy solution.
