“Can electricity flow in two directions between appliances and suppliers?”

 

In the 20th century, electricity distribution was thought to be a unidirectional, constant supply given from a generator to a sink. However, with the advent of the Smart Grid, this paradigm is now shifting. Distributed energy can be generated on site from home solar and electrical vehicles and then be fed back into the grid, therefore creating Bidirectional Electricity Flow.
