Electric cars as part of the energy transition:
Audi is researching bidirectional charging technology

Electric cars as part of the energy transition
  • Intelligent use of electric cars offers great potential for the energy transition
  • Temporary storage of domestic PV electricity possible thanks to bidirectional charging
  • Cost-optimization and domestic electricity supply provide financial incentives

Increasing network stability, lowering electricity costs, and contributing to climate protection – that is the vision that Audi and the Hager Group are pursuing. The incorporation of the electric car into the domestic grid is at the core of an innovative research project on bidirectional charging. This offers major advantages in combination with a photovoltaic system in particular. Excess PV electricity can be stored temporarily and output as needed.
