Enphase got ClipperCreek EV chargers in 2021. The business's new bidirectional charger product will certainly utilize Enphase grid-forming IQ8 microinverters and the Ensemble energy monitoring modern technology. The charger is expected to collaborate with a lot of EVs that sustain standards such as CCS (Combined Charging System) and CHAdeMO (a Japanese charging standard).

" The new bidirectional EV charger, together with Enphase's solar and also battery storage system, can be managed from the Enphase App, encouraging house owners to make, utilize, save, as well as sell their own power," said Raghu Belur, founder as well as chief items officer at Enphase Energy. "We are collaborating with standards companies, EV makers, and regulators to bring this charger to market in 2024."

In addition to charging an EV, Enphase's bidirectional charger will sustain the adhering to capability:

  • Vehicle-to-home (V2H)-- enables the EV battery to provide nonstop power to a residence during a power outage.
  • Vehicle-to-grid (V2G)-- enables the EV battery to share energy with the grid to help ease the stress on electric utilities throughout times of peak energy need.
  • Green charging-- sends out clean solar energy straight to the EV battery.

Enphase expects the bidirectional EV charger to be offered in 2024.
