Wallbox to conduct live demonstrations of its first CCS bidirectional charger Quasar 2
7 June, Munich, Germany; Wallbox N.V., (NYSE:WBX), a leading provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging and energy management solutions worldwide, will showcase its first CCS compatible bidirectional charger at The Smarter E Europe, the world's leading exhibition for the solar industry held in Munich, Germany.
Visitors will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the bidirectional technology connected to an EV in a real life setting at the Wallbox booth in the Power2Drive trade fair,Hall B6, booth 320.
Aside from its bidirectional technology, Wallbox will showcase its full suite of charging and energy management solutions for the home, business and public segments, including SIRIUS, its sophisticated energy management solution which is a finalist for the Smarter E Award for Outstanding Projects.
Wallbox to Showcase the Capabilities of its latest Bidirectional Charger Live
After the success of its world’s first bidirectional charger for home, Quasar, Wallbox will showcase and offer live demonstrations of Quasar 2, its future proof bidirectional EV charger, designed to be compatible with next generation electric vehicles. Quasar 2 uses the CCS protocol, to ensure its compatibility with EV models launching in the European market.
Quasar 2 enables EV owners to save on home energy costs through vehicle-to-home V2H and vehicle-to-grid V2G functionality. Studies show that by utilizing bidirectional charging, users can save up to 1000€ annually*, live more sustainably, help balance mounting pressure on the grid and accelerate the transition to renewable energy.
Through the App users can automatically schedule charging sessions at times when energy rates are low or solar energy is available and discharge their car to power their home when rates are high which often coincides with peak energy times, Quasar 2 transforms an EV into a powerful energy storage device. On average, an EV can power a European home for over 3 days.
Users who have solar panel installations can also store excess energy in their EV during low usage periods and then harness this energy at another time, including peak periods, to reduce their reliance on the grid while allowing users to be more energy autonomous and live more sustainably.
Media Event: Quasar 2, Reimagine what charging can do. Wallbox offers live demonstration of its first CCS bidirectional charger.
WHAT: Wallbox will unveil and offer a live demonstration of its first CCS-compatible bidirectional EV charger for the European market, including a Q&A session with the experts.

*Maximum savings assuming a user with access to a tariff Time of Use tariffs with a given delta between on and off peak periods prices. No grid or retailer fees, taxes or levies are considered. Parameters for the simulation: Electricity house consumption of 7880 kWh per year, no PV installation and EV is plugged in one weekday per week and the entire weekend. Wallbox does not guarantee the savings. Final savings depends on the country, electricity tariffs available, consumption profile, PV installation and EV usage profile.
