Powering your home with your car

May 17th, 2012 by Richard Lord

Mark Little, Chief Technology Officer for GE is interviewed at the SAE 2012 World Congress in Detroit, Michigan, USA.

He said “electric vehicles supporting grid infrastructure is here now. It is just going to get a lot better.”

“Thinking that you could power your home for a couple of days through your car is a really amazing connectivity that we have not had before” said Deb Frodl, Global Alternative Leader, GE.

Mark Little continues “today you can buy GE appliances that have the ability to connect to a home device that we and others make – the GE device is called the Nucleus. It allows you to look at energy flows around your home. It allows you to turn your appliances on and off at times that are good for energy use. It will apply to electric vehicles as well.”
