Nissan and TEPCO launch virtual power plant project

YOKOHAMA, Japan and TOKYO (Dec. 13, 2017) – A group of TEPCO employees using the Nissan e-NV200 electrical commercial van and Nissan employees using the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, will participate. The project starts today and will run until the end of January.
TEPCO will notify project participants of time periods when power grid demand is low, and those who charge their vehicles during these periods can qualify for incentives based on the amount of energy charged. The project will examine the degree to which vehicle owners respond by changing their charging times, helping smooth out power demand fluctuations. The information collected will help determine the most effective use of electric cars to help stabilize grid demand.
