ABSTRACT

A Spanish company is seeking a public or private entity responsible for developing and implementing policies to support the accelerated deployment of recharging infrastructure for Electric Vehicles (EV) for the H2020 call LC-GV-03-2019.
The project aims at removing barriers to large-scale uptake of e-mobility and set up the right conditions for a wide availability of charging points and for improving the conditions for a broad market acceptance in the electrification of transport.


FULL DESCRIPTION

A Spanish company is looking for public or private entities in charge of the implementation of policies in urban and peri-urban areas to accelerate the deployment of recharging infrastructure for Electric Vehicles (EV). This partner will join a consortium that is preparing a proposal for the H2020 topic LC-GV-03-2019.

The project aims at removing the barriers for large-scale uptake of e-mobility by means of providing new user-friendly charging solutions adaptable to the needs of different e-mobility users. This includes low power cheap charging for overnight parking and light Electric Vehicles, superfast charging supporting long-range travels, and automated charging solutions for increased convenience and user-friendliness.

The developed solutions will be scalable towards electric road systems and usable for automated vehicles. A planning tool will be developed to guide the optimal deployment of a charging infrastructure that is adapted to the needs of the users and the society as a whole, considering both power grid limitations, availability of renewable energy sources and local energy storage.

Guidelines will be provided for large-scale deployment of charging infrastructure, including viable business models and recommendations for ensuring public acceptance of e-mobility and its associated infrastructure.

Identified user groups will play a key role in taking their concerns into account and test and demonstrate viable solutions. In addition, it will improve the user experience and thereby an accelerated uptake of e-mobility. Urban and long-range travels will be considered.

The demonstrated solutions will be evaluated in terms of user perception and possibly changes in mobility patterns.

The outcome of the demonstrators will validate business and revenue models, including technical solutions for seamless payment.

EOI Deadline 31st December 2018
Call Deadline 25th April 2019

Advantages & innovations:

This project will demonstrate attractive and convenient charging infrastructure taking into account needs and expectations for different user groups, including private Electric Vehicles users from across Europe, taxi drivers or equivalent transportation services (Uber, Cabify, Lift), new shared economy mobility solutions (eCooltra, Autolib), and commercial (firms such as SEAT or Pascual having their own e-fleets for their staff) and public service providers (eBUS fleets). Demonstrate further improvements in the e-mobility experience by providing a plethora of charging opportunities including cheap low power Direct Current, DC-charging, new superfast charging and automated charging solutions (including conductive and wireless technologies).

- Facilitate user-friendly and automated payment of charging, working seamlessly across different charging operators and technologies, providing unified payment of charging, including legacy plug-in stationary charging, automated charging and the use of electric roads.

- Lowering the risk of investment in user-friendly charging infrastructure by providing planning support for optimal charging strategies and charging locations, taking into account mobility demands, needs of different social groups, city development plans, power grid capacity and energy sources (Renewable Energy Source included). Demonstrate and assess different business models for viable establishment and operation of charging infrastructure.

- Lowering the burden on the power grid when deploying charging infrastructure (including fast chargers and electric roads) through smart charging solutions balancing the power demand with locally produced Renewable Energy Source, local energy storage and vehicle-to-grid, and business models encouraging such solutions.
