Sarah Wilson reports on the bold initiative using electric vehicles to power our energy grids in The ANU reporter.

To make sure we have low or zero carbon emissions, we need to electrify as much as possible as quickly as possible.

This may seem like a herculean task. The good news is we don’t need to double the size of our electricity network in order to get there. In fact, the keys to solving the problem are, in some cases, literally in our hands.
