Those programs included a microgrid pilot that could see how well individually owned EVs could help counter brownouts—such as with the Ford F-150 Lightning
and its Intelligent Backup Power system.
As of yet, only a subset of EVs offer bidirectional charging. In addition to the F-150 Lightning, and Hyundai/Kia/Genesis models based on the automaker's E-GMP platform, Lucid has said
that this ability will be enabled soon, and it's already delivering home chargers compatible with it. Volvo has equipped its upcoming EX90
with bidirectional charging hardware for AC and DC uses, and Volkswagen has said its mainstream EVs will offer bidirectional charging capability
in the near future.
