The Volkswagen Group is already working on it with other manufacturers and grid operators.
EEBUS is the future “language of energy”
which electricity users and electricity producers, including those in private households, can use to communicate. The idea: e-cars communicate with the home on how the electricity rates and availability are trending in the period prior to when they need to get back on the road. When is electricity the cheapest? When is the grid’s capacity utilization most advantageous? And, accordingly, when is the ideal time for the charging process? Based on the conditions, which can change hourly or even by the minute, the e-car identifies when it is best to charge itself – or even to feed electricity back into the house. The Volkswagen Group is already working on this technology with partners and other companies.
