Description: This image shows the smart charger controller developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to manage peak demands in the electric grid as more electric vehicles hit the road. The controller tells the car's battery when to start and stop re-charging based upon existing stress in the grid. The controller's interface screen allows users to understand what the controller is doing at any particular time during the charging cycle.
