A Plug-and-Play Plan for E.V. Batteries – NYTimes.com   1 comment

In Denmark there is  implementation of the http://www.betterplace.com/ concept which is to swap depleted batteries from an Electric Vehicle rather tha charging the depleted batteries and having to wait for that recharge .

Shai Aggasi is the Founder & CEO of Better Place.


“The Better Place business model is a top-down, central-office approach to electric car charging infrastructure. Whether that plan will work may be uncertain, but its Danish swap station does deliver as promised.

When E.V.’s finally arrive here, Denmark could be one of a few places in the world to have eliminated limited driving range and insufficient charging spots as potential obstacles to the adoption of electric cars.”
