Time: Wednesday April 22, 2020 Location: Scandic Vulkan Hotel, Oslo, Norway
Enabling clean and green transportation by increasing the number of electric vehicles powered by renewable energy is a top priority in Europe. With the recent release of the Green Deal and the Commission’s goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, it will be key to ensuring that the integration of renewables and EV’s continues to be a priority for the EU in the years to come.
Over the past several years, the SEEV4-City project (Smart, clean Energy and Electric Vehicle 4 the City) has showcased these synergies by demonstrating how electric vehicles can support the energy transition in cities with six distinct pilot projects in the North Sea Region. The six pilots focussing on different implementation levels of Smart Charging and V2X business models are:
Vehicle to Household or Building (V2H / V2B) scale:
- Living Lab, a household in Loughborough, UK, and now replicated also in Nottingham
- City Hall of Leicester city council (HQ), U
Vehicle to Street or Neighbourhood scale:
- The Vulkan parking garage in Oslo, Norway
- FlexPower (1 and 2), the city of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- The city depot in Kortrijk, Flanders, Belgium
- The ArenA stadium / Energy Arena in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
At the final end conference of the project, we will provide insight into the key project outcomes and impacts from the various pilots as well as share lessons learned and recommendations for relevant stakeholders.
Participants will also have the opportunity to visit one of the pilots, namely, the Vulkan parking garage in Oslo one of the largest and most advanced EV charging garages in Norway and Europe. It provides opportunities for pre-booking of charging time, flexible charging, battery storage, and quick charging. Vulkan is also a hub for EVs that use overnight charging at home, in combination with (semi-)quick charging during the day. This creates a flexible and cost-efficient site for the promotion of EVs.
There will also be an interactive workshop moderated by representatives from the various SEEV4City pilots which will touch on relatable themes such as key barriers and enablers, procurement and supply chain issues, key policy recommendations, and best financing and business models for integrating EV’s and renewables in cities.
The full day event will include invited high-level experts from across Europe who will share their insight from other relevant projects & will be capped off with a closing cocktail reception.
