GreenCharge is a H2020 Project that will empower cities and municipalities to make the transition to zero emission/sustainable mobility with innovative business models, technologies and guidelines for cost efficient and successful deployment and operation of charging infrastructure for Electric Vehicles (EV).
The business models are inspired by ideas from sharing economy, meaning they will focus on how to best allow for using and sharing the excess capacity of private renewable energy sources (RES), private charging facilities and the batteries of parked EVs, in a way that makes everyone gain from it.
The technology will coordinate the power demand of charging with other local demand and availability of local RES, leveraging load flexibility and storage capacity of local stationary batteries and parked EVs. Furthermore, it will provide user friendly charge planning, booking and billing services for EV users. This will reduce the need for grid investments to establish new charging stations, remove range and charge anxiety and enable the sharing of already existing dedicated charging facilities for EV fleets.
Pilots will be carried out in Barcelona, Bremen and Oslo to demonstrate and evaluate the proposed approach.
The guidelines will integrate the experience from the pilots and simulations and advice on localisation of charging points, grid investment reductions, and policy and public communication measures for accelerating uptake of electromobility and will be aligned with Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) processes.
