NRG Energy, PJM Interconnection and researchers at the University of Delaware are collaborating on a program that will see electric vehicles generate electricity for the power grid, not just draw power. BMW provided the EVs for the project, which also employs charging stations made by Milbank Manufacturing. Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have developed a programmable recharging system that will mitigate demand from EV owners plugging in their vehicles at night.
