Octopus Energy presents Octopus Power Pack: free recharges for electric vehicles

Octopus Energyan energy company created to make renewable energy accessible to all through the use of technology, officially introduces it in the United Kingdom Octopus Power Pack, the first ‘vehicle-to-grid’ (V2G) tariff, a technology capable of transforming electric cars from simple means of transport to real energy carriers capable of exchanging electricity with the grid. This new solution will allow motorists to recharge their vehicles for free, as well as increasingly incentivising those who do not yet use electric and are considering the switch.

Still in beta, Octopus Power Pack uses V2G and Kraken technology, a cloud-based platform that controls supply and demand thanks to the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence, with the aim of identifying the best time on the network for the charging and discharging phases of the vehicle. This translates into charging your car with clean, low-cost energy – during off-peak hours – and then returning it to the grid when it needs it most (typically, during peak demand).
