Stand-alone Energy Communities are attracting a lot of attention in the wake of Japan’s tsunami devastation.

Nissan Motor’s displayed their Stand-alone Energy System complete with a LEAF to Home (V2H) power control system at CEATEC Japan 2011 (Cutting-edge IT & Electronics Comprehensive Exhibition).  The system allows LEAF owners to power their homes using the car’s battery pack.

“With a power supply system that combines double power generation (solar power and fuel cell power) with the LEAF to Home system, this home can maintain stable in-house power supply that is not affected by weather, and can rely on solar power and power stored in an EV's batteries if power is cut off during a disaster.“
