What if the car wanted to do more than just consume energy? In addition to optimal charging based on the best rate or the electricity source, electric cars will soon be applied to store low-carbon energy, derived from solar or wind power, and be able to return it to the power grid during peak consumption times. Thanks to its connectivity functions, the electric car is at the heart of an intelligent power network, also called the “smart grid”.
