If you’re a renewable energy or EV buff, the video won’t tell you anything new, but it’s a great intro to show anyone who wants to know how EVs and smart grids can successfully work in tandem. Sinclair has an optimistic take on our potential future, explaining at the end of the video that “if we make the right decisions, we could be on the verge of the most prosperous period in human history”.
