In addition to the Tramm-Göthen project, a wind park belonging to energy provider wpd in Skellefteå in northern Sweden is one of the first installations. Around another 20 projects are set to follow by 2025. In total, the installations will generate an additional 7 terawatt hours of green energy. In conjunction with the net-zero climate-neutral manufacturing of its ID. models, this sees Volkswagen take another major step towards net-zero climate-neutral electric mobility throughout the entire lifecycle. Within the corporation, VW Kraftwerk GmbH is the central body responsible for implementing the green energy projects.
Automobile manufacturers play an important role in the energy revolution when it comes to technology as well. After all, the batteries of electric cars will be an important accumulator for electricity in the future, which can either be used to make journeys with the car, or be fed back into the grid when there is high demand. “This means that there will be a huge storage capacity available, which increases flexibility and stabilises electricity demand,” says Neuber. Volkswagen is set to launch this technology – bidirectional charging.
