Unveiled in Bratislava: Central and Eastern Europe's first grid-tied battery bank coupled with a state-of-the-art rapid charging station for electric cars. With the coming wave of electric vehicles already pouring into Europe's streets, we look at what this could mean for electric personal transport, the power grid, and how it plays in with the European Commission project called Energy Union. Featuring interviews with Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of the project titled Energy Union, Peter Ševce, head of the Slovak electric vehicle association (SEVA), Peter Badík, co-founder of Greenway Slovakia, and Jackie Chang from Delta Electronics; the firm behind the new hardware.
