Ford and Microsoft Partnering on EV Smart Charging
Green Car Congress
APRIL 1, 2010
announced at the New York International Auto Show that they are teaming up to implement the Microsoft Hohm energy management application for Ford’s electric vehicles. For the vehicle application, Hohm will help owners determine when and how to most efficiently and affordably recharge battery electric (BEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicles. For EV drivers in non-Hohm utility partner communities, the system will provide a more general guide to managing the consumer’s charging.
