From electric vehicles to energy storage: EVA is forging a link with the future
A new and innovative topic, however, is the construction of stationary energy stores. In the stationary sector, EVA has been able to apply its incredible competence in the field of automotive high-voltage batteries for the construction of several prototypes. The bandwidth extends from small systems for typical single-family houses up to the megawatt range that enables electricity to be stored on a massive scale.
The yield obtainable from a solar power system is easily predictable these days. The efficient interaction between power generation, power storage and intelligent power consumption, however, demands a certain level of intelligence in the home system. In this respect, the "smart home" symbolizes the house of the future, where green energy is delivered to the location of use on demand by the stationary energy store. This applies equally to the charging of electric vehicles and to the operation of energy-hungry household appliances. For example, the electric heat pump for central heating and domestic hot water or the washing machine can be controlled and operated according to demand. Like an electric vehicle which always has its energy supply on board, an entire house could be supplied with power almost autonomously.
