Honda in study to use cars to supply the electric grid

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle, or PHEV. The Honda Accord PHEV is being used in a study to allow vehicles to help power electric grids when demand is high.

What if your car could help prevent blackouts and brownouts when the electric grid is overtaxed during hot summer days?

Such technology might be in our future.

Honda on Thursday announced that it has joined a project at the University of Delaware to study the concept of sending power from vehicles to the electric grid. The project is called the Vehicle-to-Grid Technology Demonstration Project.

Honda, whose U.S. headquarters is in Torrance, is supplying an Accord Plug-In Hybrid for the project. BMW is also participating in the study.

“This technology has the potential to support both a cleaner and more efficient power grid and a more positive ownership experience for EV (electric vehicle) customers,” said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office of American Honda Motor Co. Inc., in a statement.
