Before the harsh winter storms were announced in Texas in February 2021, proactive people began to prepare for the storm. They charged their e-cars. During the storm, they were able to keep warm in their electric vehicles. And they could recharge their phones. Fortunately, the power outages were not too long and the e-cars could be recharged to be used as a versatile storage device. The advantages of an electric vehicle go far beyond climate protection concerns. They have great potential to guarantee their owners warmth and security.

A more sophisticated way to use electricity from the e-car battery is to install a bidirectional charging station. Bidirectional charging is exactly what it sounds like: charging that goes two ways. Whilst with unidirectional, one-way chargers, electricity flows from the electric grid into the e-car, with bidirectional, two-way chargers, electricity can flow both ways. That means, the battery of an e-car store, shares and re-purposes energy when needed. This can successfully bridge emergency situations such as a power failure, a reassuring fact in times of wild nature.

We believe the benefits don’t end here.
