TOKYO -– Nissan Motor Co. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. aim to jointly develop a technology that allows electric vehicle owners to power their homes from car batteries, a news report says.

Cooperation could lead to unified standards for the technology, which attracted interest in Japan following widespread power outages in the wake of the country’s March 11 earthquake.

Japan’s Yomiuri newspaper reported earlier this month that both carmakers were working on a standardized technology that could be used nationwide. The companies declined to comment.

Nissan and Mitsubishi are among the early entrants in the electric vehicle race, with Nissan fielding its Leaf battery-powered car and Mitsubishi selling its four-seat i-MiEV.

Car companies began touting the use of the electric cars’ lithium ion battery packs as a back-up power source for homes after the earthquake and tsunami left thousands without electricity.

Nissan unveiled its back-up system Aug. 2. It can power a typical Japanese household for about two days. Mitsubishi announced its own adaptor a month earlier. It converts the battery’s DC current into AC power to run such appliances as refrigerators and air conditioners.
