Nissan xStorage Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) is a bi-directional home power solution



If you thought Tesla's Powerwall was the only game in town, you'd be wrong as there are many other manufacturers of similar home power solutions such as LG Chem, Orison, Sonnen, SimpliPhi, Sunverge, Powervault, Mercedes, ElectrIQ, Panasonic, and Nissan's xStorage is one of the latest.

Here are some notes on the power system:
  • Used to provide Grid Services: xStorage Home could charge from the grid or discharge to the grid in order to generate the flexibility needed to further increase the penetration of renewable energy

  • Renewables: xStorage Home can store energy from your renewables installation (Solar panels, wind power, subfloor heating…) and allow to use that energy for your home when you need it

  • XStorage Home: The battery stocks both grid and renewable energy during the day, allowing you to source it how you want and when you want. Thanks to Nissan + Eaton technology, you have the power (and can even give some back to the grid as well).

  • Redistribute over production of renewables: Sometimes, your renewables are producing more energy than needed to power the load. Therefore, xStorage Home injects the energy back into the grid when the demand is high.

So as you can see this energy storage system not only will store and redistribute power throughout the day, but it can also sell the energy back into the grid.

Nissan is also recycling used EV batteries in their xStorage units to make best use of otherwise still functioning battery packs and to remain more environmentally friendly.
