Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) System to Debut in Denmark, Pays Users $10,000 For Service

EVs are not so common these days, but if they make enough financial sense, we'll see them flooding cities soon enough. As Denmark is currently the country which profits the most from wind power, Nuvve, the U.S.-based company that created the vehicle-to-grid (V2G) system, has announced that it will start using Denmark's electric vehicles as buffers for stabilizing the grid frequency, Cleantechnica reports.
