Electrek, Sandy Munro and Jeff Dahn are all hinting at Tesla's having the capability for bi-directional charging and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) features. Is Tesla getting ready to announce a new software feature that will allow its vehicles to put energy back on the grid? V2G has long been touted in academic circles as having the potential to stabilize the grid, and solve the expense (and very pollutive) dispatch curve problem. If Tesla succeeds with massive batteries and virtual power plants, peaker plants could be a thing of the past. ARK Invest pegs this as an ~$800B global market opportunity.
