Today, more than ever, environmentally friendly technology solutions are needed to prevent further global warming. Our world has surpassed the threshold of 400 ppm carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the average temperature in nearly hundred years has increased by almost 1°C.
The ongoing transition from fossil energies to renewables requires short-term storage media with high efficiency, like batteries and flywheels. One of the most promising future energy storage options are electrical vehicles with grid capability. In addition to environmentally friendly mobility, this option increases the flexibility of a power system by making optimum use of the energy whenever it is available from a renewable source, like a photovoltaic solar cell installation.
