Device makes electric vehicle charging a two-way street

Press/Media: Research


A new device turns electric vehicles into chargers for houses and stranded cars. Researchers led by Seyedfoad Taghizadeh from Australia’s Macquarie University are looking to commercialise the technology, which may significantly increase the appeal of the vehicles. The new charging system is installed inside a vehicle, which can then be charged by simply plugging it into a domestic circuit. However, for houses that rely on batteries for storage, the fully charged vehicle is also capable of feeding power in the other direction, thus becoming a back-up system.


New tech means cars can power houses, as well as the other way round.
