Vandebron plugs car owners into the electricity market

Vandebron

This pilot project with the Dutch green energy company Vandebron gives electric car owners the opportunity to contribute to grid balancing with excess electricity from their car batteries.

As part of our broader programme to enable private individuals and smaller companies to participate in the energy transition, the pilot with Vandebron, which is owned by E.ON, enables TenneT to tap into the electricity used to charge electric cars.

During the charging of the electric cars, charging was started or stopped at TenneT’s request, which Vandebron facilitated via blockchain technology. Vandebron customers participating in the pilot received compensation for the electricity provided. Tesla drivers were also able to participate in the pilot through an app.

“Vandebron customers participating in the pilot received compensation for the electricity provided.”

“We see this TSO initiative as a great opportunity to unlock flexibility from small, decentralized devices such as electric vehicles and heat pumps. This important collaboration will really help reduce reliance on fossil fuels and boost the energy transition in Europe whilst providing new business opportunities ”
