Use Cases


V2H integration with HEMS for renewables’ integration and tariff optimization in prosumer homes

Expected impacts

DriVe2X aims to demonstrate use of novel charging methods including smart energy management systems, renewable energy sources and bidirectional EVs in “Vehicle-to-Home (V2H)” behind-the-meter scenario and its impact on load curve compared to conventional EV charging as well as to use of fossil fuel passenger cars using purchased validation data.

Business model

Prosumer tariff optimization leveraged by residential smart charging, in which the EV battery is treated as an additional distributed resource integrated with home energy management systems. In addiction energy communities are established, connecting potential customers and offering energy distribution as a service.
