Good Energy teams up with Honda to power homes with electric cars

One of Britain’s largest clean energy suppliers has teamed up with Honda to trial how electric vehicles could be used to help power homes more efficiently.

The pair’s full-scale trial will integrate electric vehicles into test homes on the Salford University campus that run solar panels, home batteries and smart heating systems to demonstrate how consumers can draw on the home energy boom to bring down bills.

The plans flip the traditional energy dynamic, which assumes that electric vehicles (EVs) will receive power from homes by developing a ‘vehicle-to-home’ system.

Juliet Davenport, the chief executive of Good Energy, said the project meant it would be able to “truly see the impact for people’s homes, and their lives”.
