      GE, Nissan explore EVs for home energy storage

      On Friday, GE and Nissan signed a two-year research collaboration to speed up deployment of electric vehicles, an extension to an agreement announced last year ... The research will look at whether stored energy can automatically supply a house during peak times, when electricity rates are higher. GE and Nissan also said they will explore if solar panels can directly charge car batteries. Another area of research will model how large numbers of electric vehicles, which pull about as much power as a whole house, affects management of the grid for utilities.
