IRIS Transition Track #3: Smart e-Mobility Sector

 

     IS-3.1: Smart Solar V2G EVs charging (PV // V2G // batteries // e-cars // e-buses // indoor structure)

 

 The main innovations of the lighthouse project are: 

  1. to best deploy district-scale storage, combining V2G batteries as primary storage and stationary batteries in the apartment buildings as secondary storage, supported by open ICT for interconnection, performance monitoring and new information services (Transition Track #4, #5) for aggregators, grid operators, municipality and citizens, 
  2. the smart control of these charging stations and their periodic maintenance for the management of pollution peaks. 

Additional innovative elements are: 

  1. the use of solar charging for e-buses, which can be discharged at the time that energy demand and prices are high; 
  2. indoor (in building’s volume) smart solar charging stations, in the context of indoor bus stations minimizing power losses 
  3. investigation of integrating the use of electric boats as an additional mobility track element which has a strong EU aspect.

     IS-3.2: Innovative Mobility Services for the Citizens

 

 The main innovations of the lighthouse project are:  

  1. Solar V2G car sharing scheme (UTR) - We Drive Solar is a car sharing system that deploys electric cars, that are V2G and solar powered. 
  2. Free floating scheme (NCA) - The added value of these innovative mobility services, lies on the consideration of the impact of the technological evolutions on users’ daily practices on a territory, by examining what are the links between technical aspects (number of charging stations, level of connectivity, improvement of online offering, increasing of EV’s autonomy…) and behaviors?. In return, what are the practice’s impacts on technological evolutions (including EV’s geographical distribution, energy management, dynamic pricing…).
  3. EC2B (GOT) - An innovative feature of EC2B is that it nudges users towards more sustainable travel habits through providing information. Since EC2B potentially reduces car ownership it reduces significantly demand for parking space, which creates value for property developers who include EC2B in their properties, as building parking lots and underground garages are very expensive. It also increases significantly the use of the vehicles (on average parked 90% of the time), which allows for faster depreciation and more frequent renewal of the fleets.
