Mitsubishi unveils technology




in which the electric car house provides power
Car manufacturer Mitsubishi has developed an energy system with which an electric car provides power to a home or vice versa. The so-called Dendo Drive House, presented on Wednesday at the Geneva Motor Show, will be on the market later this year.

The Dendo Drive House or DDH is a package that consists of solar panels, a battery that is installed in the home and a bidirectional charger. This charger lets the electricity flow from the house to the electric car or from the car to the house, depending on where the energy is most needed or what is the cheapest solution at that moment. According to The Verge , several electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid models will support DDH technology, including the existing Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the new Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer , which was also presented at the Geneva Fair.

There are various scenarios imaginable in which it is convenient that an electric car provides power to the home. In the event of a power failure in the network, the car ensures, for example, that all equipment in the home continues to work. There is also an economic advantage according to Mitsubishi. For example, it can be financially more advantageous to charge the vehicle at night during the off-peak tariff and use the car during the day to provide the house with energy. Condition is then that you do not need the vehicle during the day.

The Mitsubishi solution is not unique. In the original Tesla Roadster there was a similar energy system, which was removed in later models. In a tweet from last summer , CEO Elon Musk let slip that the company might ever return to that decision.
