The ever-increasing demand for electricity requires constant expansion of generation facilities capable of providing the quantity and quality of energy supplied to the consumer. The search for highly efficient and more productive technological solutions in the field of electricity production and storage through distributed generation is one of the main lines in the development of the electric power sector. In turn, the wider use of such technologies, their advancements and improvements in their quality create the need to assess the potentialities and prospects for the use of various types of electrical energy storage and the related technologies required. The paper addresses the possibility of using electric vehicles as a battery for a small solar power plant.
