Concept study – using a hybrid vehicle as a CHP plant

  • Decentralisation and increasing energy efficiency are factors of success of the 'Energiewende'. Sensible interlinking of various energy markets will support and speed up the energy system transformation process. This concept study looks at and discusses an innovative approach to integrate power, heat and the mobility market using hybrid vehicles. Automobile electrification is steadily rising and goes hand-in-hand with qualitative (larger energy storage options) and quantitative storage capacity (much more hybrid vehicles). Further utilisation options of electrical storage units in e-vehicles for intermediate storage to compensate volatile renewable energy sources are being discussed and tested. The innovative approach of integrating future full-hybrid vehicles with the principle of 'combined heat and power' to supply energy to buildings is not being pursued in depth, or even at all. In this approach both the electrical and also the thermal energy produced would be used as supply sources for the building.
