The New Charging Infrastructure: Controlling Cars and Homes through Power -- Nikkei Electronics Asia --May 2010 - Tech-On!
Nice little overview of V2G tech and the coming smartgrid as a potential opportunity for japanese businesses to fight back after their crushing defeat in the software IT business. Except, the horse is already out of the barn, considering there are real smartgrid deployments in the US, while in japan the government is still in the discussion stage (typically talking forever, then bam, sudden fullscale nationwide rollout of one solution that is slightly behind, as opposed to homogeneous tech rollouts elsewhere). Many businesses have been forced to go to the US to do tech demonstrations and rollouts because of a lack of opportunities in japan, which is telling.
