Executives and officials from the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) recently visited and learnt about the Nissan Energy concept which leverages the unique capabilities of electric vehicles (EVs) for purposes beyond mobility at Nissan Electrification Experience Center NEEC – located in the Nissan manufacturing plant KM.21 , Samut Prakan Province, welcomed by Mr. Masao Tsutsumi, Vice President for Marketing and Sales.
The Nissan Energy Share concept is the transfer of electricity between electric cars and homes, office building and grid network. The Nissan LEAF, as the world’s first mass-market all-electric vehicle, and one of the only EVs sold in Thailand, that comes with bidirectional charging capability which has been a standard feature on the vehicle since its introduction in 2010. Power can also be transferred back to the grid via V2G (V2G – Vehicle-to-Grid) technology, and electricity can be shared within households or small businesses through V-to-H (V2H – Vehicle-to-Home) technology to save electricity costs or as an alternative energy during power outages or emergencies. It is another way to contribute to building energy sustainability for the society.
