Coming Soon-Quick charging system for electric vehicles using solar panels and lithium ion batteries
Nissan and Showa Shell will start studies on joint development of a quick charging system for electric vehicles (EV) using Showa Shell’s next-generation CIS solar panels and Nissan’s advanced lithium ion batteries for automotive use. A quick charging system of which both companies will consider joint development aims to have following characteristics:-Maximizing the use of solar power which is renewable energy, the system will contribute to diffusion of EV as a ultimate zero emission vehicle which emits no exhaust gas like CO2 not only in driving but also in generating electricity.
With lithium-ion batteries, power will be able to be supplied in case of power outage at the time of disaster.
In addition, a quick charging system using the next-generation CIS solar panels and lithium ion batteries is expected to be utilized in houses and large-scale solar power plants (mega solar plants).
