MyEnergi Lifestyle to Link Electric Cars, Home Management
Ford Motor Company is launching the "MyEnergi Lifestyle" collaboration to show how a typical American family can significantly reduce electricity bills and their carbon footprint by integrating electric vehicles (EV), smart appliances and solar energy.
Georgia Institute of Technology computer models show that homeowners can achieve a 60% reduction in energy costs and a 55% reduction in carbon emissions by using this approach.
Comprised of leaders in the home appliance, renewable energy and power management industries, including Eaton (EV charger), SunPower (solar), Whirlpool (smart refrigerator), Infineon (energy sensors) and Nest Labs (smart thermostat), they will demonstrate how combining renewable energy generation with "time-flexible" loads optimizes energy consumption in both vehicles and home appliances.
