A certain energy company is offering free electric car charging if the owners allow the exporting of the car's battery stored energy back into the grid or house at times of peak demand.

This should not flatten the battery as the car owner can request limits to the discharge of the car's battery.

This will involve "bi-directional chargers." A trial of this scheme has been running in Denmark. National Grid has said that such smart charging will be crucial to ensure that electric vehicles do not place a significant extra strain on the U.K.s energy system.

Apparently if all U.K. cars were electric they cold provide a "virtual power plant of up to 200 gigaWatts, several times the peak requirement."
