The project not only focuses on feeding electric current from the public power grid into the batteries of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. Consortium leader is the Danish Energy Association, the umbrella organization of Denmark’s energy technology companies. The project focuses on a change from combustion engine vehicles to electro mobility utilizing eco-friendly renewable energy sources. TAGSConEd Renewable project management firm Bradley acquired by Bureau Veritas 2.26.2009center_img 26 February 2009 – Siemens Energy is to investigate within the framework of the EDISON project innovative options for connecting electric vehicles to the public power supply grid. The power grid connection constitutes a special challenge because large amounts of energy have to flow quickly and bidirectionally to be able to use the electrical energy in the batteries also as balancing power. A consortium including Siemens signed a contract for the EDISON project with Energienet.dk, the operator of Denmark’s gas and power transmission networks. Besides Siemens, the consortium also comprises the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Risø-DTU, the university’s research center for sustainable energies, the Danish research and development company Eurisco, the Danish utilities Dong Energy and Østkraft as well as IBM.

This project will also investigate whether, in times of high grid load, electric vehicles can return energy from their fully charged batteries to the power grid when they are not in use.
