What is Bi-directional Charging & how it going to change the EV Industry

In bidirectional (two-way) EV charging electricity can flow in both directions. While in a Conventional EV Charger power goes from the electric grid into the electric car in unidirectional (one-way), the Bi-directional Chargers allows current to flow in and out of the electric car. When an EV is charged, AC (alternating current) electricity from the …
