People in Denmark are earning money from their parked electric cars | GBRI
 

Electricity grids around the world are facing a lot of constraints as more electric vehicles hit the road and as grid supply changes. When a large number of electric vehicles draw power from the grid simultaneously, that threatens to change how grid operators plan to meet demand.

In an attempt to help ease constraints on the electrical grid, people in Denmark are now using their parked electric vehicles (EVs) as spare batteries and even earning money in the process by sending excess power back into the grid.

By installing two-way connections where an EV could charge its battery and send power back to the grid when it’s needed, an electric car battery increases its value and makes electricity infrastructure more stable.
