Electric Mobility Solutions; xStorage By Nissan

Feb 1, 2018

 Back to article listings for 2018

xStorage is a portfolio of energy storage solutions that give you access to safe, reliable and sustainable energy. The home storage unit gives Nissan’s electric vehicle batteries a ‘second life’. By partnering with Eaton, we provide scalable energy storage systems fit for your homes and your business, allowing all of us to benefit from the transition towards a more sustainable society. Nissan and Eaton have put their heads together to create xStorage, the product of over 170 years of combined sustainable energy experience.

Nissan introduced its first electric vehicle in 1947 and has become the world leader in electric vehicle technology in the 70 years since. Eaton recently celebrated its centennial, marking 100 years of power management innovations. The two have combined their proven technologies and products to bring the best of energy storage to you, from more energy-efficient buildings, cities and infrastructure to next-generation aircrafts, cars, trucks and machines.

xStorage Home stores energy at the most economical times of the day while controlling how and when that energy is put to use, saving you money and bettering the entire energy system. xStorage Home has been designed to be the most reliable and affordable home energy storage solution on the market. It seamlessly integrates all the hardware and software needed to manage and store the energy your home needs in a single unit.

HOW DOES XSTORAGE WORK?
Used to provide Grid Services: xStorage Home could charge from the grid or discharge to the grid in order to generate the flexibility needed to further increase the penetration of renewable energy Renewables: xStorage Home can store energy from your renewables installation (Solar panels, wind power, subfloor heating…) and allow to use that energy for your home when you need it xStorage Home: The battery stocks both grid and renewable energy during the day, allowing you to source it how you want and when you want. Thanks to Nissan + Eaton technology, you have the power (and can even give some back to the grid as well).

Redistribute over production of renewables: Sometimes, your renewables are producing more energy than needed to power the load. Therefore, xStorage Home injects the energy back into the grid when the demand is high.
