Looking for alternatives for the global fossil fuel dependency, The Netherlands introduces an intelligent energy solution: a smart electricity network that enables residents to use their electric cars' batteries to store locally produced energy, for instance from solar panels. These public posts can charge and discharge batteries in electric vehicles, making the them an energy storage platform. This approach makes it possible for households, via an open data platform, to organize their own energy supply cost-effectively and sustainably. This contributes to the challenge of the storage of renewable energy.
