    Energy Storage Key to Integrating Dispatchable Resources for Nissan and Others

    Last week carmaker Nissan and power electronics and engineering group Eaton unveiled a demonstration model of an energy storage control centre, which has been developed by the two companies at Eaton’s research facilities in Switzerland. The control centre combines Eaton’s uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with second life – repurposed – Nissan Leaf batteries. It can manage multiple energy inputs, including solar, the grid and battery storage bi-directionally (managing the flow of power into and out of the system) and, the makers hope, manage various different applications for the system, including charging cheaply with off-peak electricity at night.
