Comments Off on Denmark to Pay EV Owners for Their Battery Power

Denmark will be the first country to start a program for EV owners that lets them earn money on power they feed to the grid from their charged car batteries.  An EV owner could make as much as $10,000 over the life of the car. US-based company Nuvve chose the country as the pilot for its Vehicle-to-Grid technology because Denmark has already made a lot of smart grid improvements to cater to intermittent energy sources, like wind power.  In September, the program will start with 30 cars outfitted with drive trains that allow a bidirectional grid power connection.  Many EVs are being built with this technology.
