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.
The program should expand quickly over the following months and participating Danes can start making some cash back on their EVs.
