The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) unveiled an electric vehicle charging station that can also make electricity from sunlight, store electricity and put electricity back in the power grid when needed.

The prototype Smart Modal Area Recharge Terminal, or SMART station, developed by TVA and EPRI is among the first public electric vehicle charging stations with all these features. Located at EPRI’s Knoxville Research Laboratory, the station demonstrated its capabilities Tuesday while charging electric vehicles built by General Motors, Mitsubishi and Nissan.
