Sharp Develops Intelligent Power Conditioner That Enables Electric Vehicle Batteries to Be Used as Storage Batteries for Home Power

Sharp has developed the Intelligent Power Conditioner that enables batteries in electric vehicles to be used as storage batteries for the home.

With electric vehicles (EVs) expected to see widespread use in the coming years, this technology can make use of EV traction batteries as part of a residential power storage system. In proof-of-concept trials, Sharp succeeded in using a battery pack in a commercially available EV to supply 8 kW of power, which is enough to power electrical appliances in an average household. In addition, the charge controller in the Intelligent Power Conditioner was able to deliver 4 kWh of energy to recharge the electric vehicle battery pack in approximately 30 minutes.

    I don’t think that using your car batteries is a great application. I feel the storage battery (a larger-scale bank) should be located in the garage or a battery box outside.

    These nickel iron batteries would be ideal for this home application. http://ironedison.com

    The most important technology mentioned in this article is the ability to pull energy off the grid when rate are low, and store it for later use. Hypothetically you could buy it cheap and sell it back when rates go back up during peak demand. So, you see… the car battery is not going to be a long-term solution to the very real problem of storing energy throughout the night.
