E-pool / Energy sharing system


E-pool is a distributed energy storage system designed for small cities that rely on renewable energy. It contains an electric vehicle power-sharing port and a reward system. The port charges electricity into EV when excess electric energy is present in the grid and releases electricity from the EV into the grid when insufficient. E-pool can increase the efficiency of energy use and reduce the cities’ dependence on Fossil-fuel. In addition, the transfer of resources used to build redundant power generation capacity to the sharing pile will improve the experience, reduce cost, and encourage cycle in the electric vehicles sector.
