Gallery: University of Delaware’s Electric Vehicles Give Power Back to ...

 

Electric vehicles are pretty green in their own right. After all, the cars create zero carbon emissions. But imagine a vehicle that not only runs on electricity, but actually gives power back to the grid. One University of Delaware professor converted a few of the college’s vehicles to do just that. Under the school’s vehicle-to-grid program (V2G), Toyota Scions owned by the university and the state of Delaware feed electricity back to the local grid.

    Interestingly enough, the vacuum of space may be the source for both forms of Super V2G. Physicists will undoubtedly debate the issue for some time.

    Water as fuel uses fractional Hydrogen, which may eventually be accepted as a Zero Point Energy phenomenon.

    Magnetic generators were first demonstrated in the 1920’s in Germany. Hans Coler called the source “space energy”. It may turn out he was correct and that these systems convert Zero Point Energy as well. Space is chock full of energy that has not yet proven practical for human use. That seems about ready to change.

    OK. Where do these electric cars GET the electricity they feed back to the grid? Out of the vacuum of space?

    Super V2G is on the horizon. See Cars as Power plants at http://www.aesopinstitute.org
