Volkswagen is bigger than ever with the merged in Porsche, but making cars doesn't seem to be enough for the company. According to German Spiegel Volkswagen is supposed to revolutionize the energy market with small power plants for homes.
Together with the German Green Power supplier Lichtblick VW wants to sell tiny natural gas power plants people can install in the cellar of their homes. Besides power the VW home power plants also generate warm water and heating.
The tiny power plants are supposed to be networked and feed power into the grid when it is needed most. The plan is to replace at least two nuclear power plants.
If Volkswagen can do for the energy market what they once did with the Beetle than traditional energy suppliers have to worry.
Update: Volkswagen Power Plants for Homes are Official.
