The Danish EDISON project has been launched to investigate how a large fleet of electric vehicles
(EVs) can be integrated in a way that supports the electric grid while benefitting both individual car
owners, and society as a whole through reductions in CO2 emissions. The consortium partners include
energy companies, technology suppliers and research laboratories and institutes. The aim is to
perform a thorough investigation of the challenges and opportunities of EVs and then to deliver a
technical platform that can be demonstrated on the Danish island of Bornholm. To reach this goal, a
vast amount of research is done in various areas of EV technology by the project partners.
