IBM, Honda, And PG&E Enable Smarter Charging For Electric Vehicles

PG&E Corp. (PCG) announced that International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) has teamed with American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and Pacific Gas and Electric Company on a new pilot project that will allow communication between electric vehicles or EVs and the power grid. This project will demonstrate and test an electric vehicle's ability to receive and respond to charge instructions based on the grid condition and the vehicle's battery state.

With visibility into charging patterns, energy providers will have the ability to more effectively manage charging during peak hours and create consumer-friendly programs to encourage electric vehicle adoption, PG&E Corp said.
