Japan Benex, Sumitomo Corp. to power plant with Nissan EVs, batteries

TOKYO/ISAHAYA/YOKOHAMA, Japan – Japan Benex Corp. and Sumitomo Corp. will launch a “Future Plant” project using rooftop solar panels, Nissan electric vehicles and electric-vehicle batteries to power Japan Benex’s headquarters plant in Isahaya, Japan.

The newly developed stationary power storage system combines renewable energy, reused batteries and electric vehicles to promote efficient energy use and environmental sustainability. Nissan will support the project by providing 10 Nissan e-NV200 electric commercial vehicles.

The vehicles and batteries will help stabilize output from the solar power system and reduce the plant’s electricity costs by using stored energy during times of peak demand. The Nissan e-NV200s will be used by employees for commuting or work purposes, and their batteries will eventually be recycled and refabricated as components of the energy storage system.
