GTM: Can Nuvve Make V2G Work in the Real World?

June 20, 2011 therezolution no comments Electric vehicles as the “cash-back car” by Eric Wesoff June 20, 2011 Denmark has more renewable power on the grid than most other nations, mostly wind power, and that variable power source presents some unique problems that can put some strain on the grid. What if the batteries in a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) could provide a distributed storage resource for renewables? That’s […]

The Economist Online: Horsepower v cash cows

AS IF petrolheads did not already have reasons aplenty to hate electric vehicles. With oil prices rising inexorably (the recent dip notwithstanding) drivers of these silent, soulless battery-powered contraptions are set to look smugly on as gas-guzzlers burn a hole in their owners’ pockets. Now, adding insult to injury, research suggests that electric cars might actually make a profit for their owners. At present, in order to meet sudden surges in demand, power companies have […]

AutoBlog: It’s payback time from your “Cashback Car”

BY: Richard Canny The problem with lithium-ion batteries is that they’re just still too costly. And heavy. And large. When the electric vehicles(EVs) that those batteries are installed in are actually being driven, their operating cost is unbeatable – about two to three cents per mile. The problem is that the typical EV (like most vehicles) sits idle for about 95 percent of the time. Having an expensive asset sitting idle […]

Tech Crunch: Energy is the New Internet

If you’re not paying attention to what’s going on in energy, you should. We’ve seen this movie before. Spoiler alert: There’s massive economic opportunity ahead. How massive? Imagine standing in 1992, knowing that Google, Akamai, Netflix, Facebook, Amazon, eBay, BuzzFeed and Uber lay ahead. This time it’s the “enernet,” not the internet, that will transform our lives. The story is the same, though the players have changed. Here’s the tee […]
