Tesla has submitted an application to Ofgem to become a power generator in the UK.
It is unclear what Tesla’s intentions are behind the application though the license requests permission to generate electricity to supply ‘any premises’ in Great Britain.
The company built the world’s-largest lithium-ion battery in South Australia, which Tesla claims can provide enough power for more than 30,000 homes.
It also developed software, called Autobidder, which uses machine-learning to give information to other companies so they can sell surplus electricity back to the grid. Find out more.
