11 Apr Live demonstration of Parker at large Groupe PSA event
From March 22nd to 24th, French car manufacturer Groupe PSA (the group behind Citroën, Peugeot, DS and Free2Move brands) organised a large internal showcase of innovation projects in Paris. As part of the three day event, a demonstration of the Parker project was showcased through a live video feed, displaying latest research on grid integrated vehicles.
The event was attended by the chairman of the supervisory board as well as the PSA CEO and management team. Groupe PSA, who is a partner in the Parker project, hosted the large internal event demonstrating their latest innovation projects.
The demonstration of the Parker project was showcased through a live video feed of a Peugeot ION providing bi-directional grid support and was made from the SYSLAB facility, part of PowerLabDK.
More specific, the demonstration showed a live feed from the Nuvve aggregation backend in USA, controlling an Italian charger, connected to a French electrical vehicle – all put together in the SYSLAB facility with a live feed from the lab.
The demonstration visualised the direction of the power flow between the vehicle and the grid, which made it possible to see when the vehicle was pulling power from the grid and when it was providing power to the grid. This was a demonstration of the world leading technology currently applied at PowerLabDK.
