    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.
