Why EVs are not a success in Denmark

If renewables are the have a chance to gain any market share, they’ll need to be planned for because they’re so intermittent. Gas offers a very good backstop to renewables.”

PA is interviewed for TV2 Nyhederne on the bankruptcy of electric vehicle network operator Better Place.

PA comments on the bankruptcy of the Danish branch of EV network operator Better Place. According to PA, one of the reasons for the bankruptcy is the limited choice of electric car models currently on the market.

“There is currently only one battery swap model for the EV market, which was introduced last year. This model fitted into Better Place’s business model and thereby provided the sufficient range,” said PA.

PA stresses that if EVs are to penetrate the Danish market, it requires new initiatives from Danish politicians: “The government needs to consider changing the tax system in order to make smaller EVs more economically attractive, as well as hybrid vehicles.”
