In the future "smart" electrical grids will both charge our electric vehicles and occasionally use some of the power stored in the vehicles to help maintain the stability of the electrical grid. This vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology will help reduce the occurrence of electrical brownouts and blackouts.

  • 2008.04.22 - Plug-in Hybrids Power the Electrical Grid - Peak Moment TV - Professor Andy Frank's vision is for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to be charged on green, renewable power from solar panels built into the roofs of our parking lots. This would allow the vehicles to be used as mobile batteries, contributing solar power back to the electrical grid when needed, thereby helping to "load balance" the demand. At home, the same vehicle batteries can help power a house (vehicle-to-house V2H), or feed energy back to the grid (vehicle-to-grid V2G).
