"The potential for private users of the greenfuel concept is demonstrated at a residential home of pioneer users  Equipped with a photovoltaic power supply and a Mercedes-Benz Home storage solution the house enjoys already a certain level of energetic autarcy. At times where the stored energy turns out to be insufficient,  the fuel-cell-car steps in. By utilizing a EVTEC bidirectional charger and the KIWIGRID intelligent energy management system, this car is not limited any longer to be charged with the locally produced solar power from the house only, it is even more capable to produce energy in its fuel-cell in order to recharge the batterystorage of the house the other way around.
