Green eMotion: Development and demonstration of a unique and user-friendly framework for green electromobility in Europe
Start date: Mar 1, 2011,
End date: Feb 28, 2015
Green eMotion aims at enabling mass deployment of electromobility in Europe. To achieve this, major players from industry, the energy sector, municipalities as well as universities and research institutions have joined forces to develop and demonstrate a commonly accepted and user-friendly framework consisting of interoperable and scalable technical solutions in connection with a sustainable business platform. The Smart Grids development, innovative ICT solutions, different types of electric vehicles (EV) as well as urban mobility concepts will be taken into account for the implementation of this framework. Green eMotion will connect ten ongoing regional and national electromobility initiatives leveraging on the results and comparing the different technology approaches to ensure the best solutions prevail for the EU single market. A virtual marketplace will be created to enable the different actors to interact and to allow for new high-value transportation services as well as EV-user convenience in billing (EU Clearing House). Furthermore, the project will contribute to the improvement and development of new and existing standards for electromobility interfaces. The elaborated technological solutions will be demonstrated in all participating demonstration regions to prove the interoperability of the framework. Green eMotion will facilitate the understanding of all stakeholders about the parameters which influence the achievement of best possible results for society, environment as well as economy and thus ensure transfer of best practices. As a result, policy makers, urban planners and electric utilities will receive a reference model for a sustainable rollout of electromobility in Europe. The commitment of industry players ensures the focus of the project on the market after demonstration. By proving efficient and user-friendly solutions which are also profitable for businesses, the Green eMotion framework plans to accomplish EU wide acceptance of all stakeholders.
