Mitsubishi and Tokyo Institute of Technology Developing EV Smart Charging from Wind Turbines

Green Car Congress

and the Tokyo Institute of Technology are developing a smart charging system to exploit wind power produced at night to charge electric vehicles. In order to store electricity generated at night, windmill operators need to install sodium-sulfur battery systems, which are as costly as power generators. The technology developed by the alliance is expected to help reduce this investment burden, which has prevented a wider adoption of wind power generation. Nikkei.
