Ford announced this morning a new partnership with Microsoft to work on advancing home charging for forthcoming electric vehicles. The companies will share Microsoft Hohm, an online home energy management application to help future owners of Ford’s electrified vehicles optimize their home’s energy use including recharging their vehicle. Hohm is a online beta application allows homeowners to better manage their enegry usage through the software’s recommendation engine.

With Ford, Microsoft Hohm will aim to help future owners of Ford’s electric vehicles optimize the way they recharge their vehicle and better manage their home’s energy use. Both companies also intend to work with utilities and municipalities to help develop an energy ecosystem that manages energy usage as consumer demand for electric vehicles grows.
