SEEV4-City Closing Webinar 2: Vehicle-to-Grid and Smart Charging

Featured image

This second webinar of the SEEV4-City project is about Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Smart Charging: the future symbiosis between emission-free transport and sustainable energy infrastructure. In recent years new technologies have been developed that can help maximize the synergies between electric vehicles and local renewable energy sources. SEEV4-City explored these opportunities in practice as part of its approach to A Smarter Electricity Grid for People, Planet & Profit: the electricity grid is used as an energy buffer, on both a daily and a seasonal scale. Across Europe investments in renewable energy production and charging infrastructure for electric vehicles are growing – it is fundamental to see how they can work together.

SEEV4-City Closing Webinar 2: Vehicle-to-Grid and Smart Charging

Smart, Clean Energy and Electric Vehicles for the City (SEEV4-City) is an innovative project funded by the EU Interreg North Sea Region Programme that just came to its conclusion. Its main objective was to demonstrate that smart electric mobility solutions that integrate renewable-energy sources encourage take-up in cities.

The project looked at different pilot solutions and elaborated case studies and best practices based upon them. For this purpose, two approaches have been identified for testing:

  • Information and communication technologies can help to structure and maximize the synergies between electric vehicles and local renewable energy sources.
  • A Smarter Electricity Grid for People, Planet & Profit. The electricity grid is used as energy buffer, on a daily and a seasonal scale.

Join us for the 3 closing webinars to learn about the results of this project. Come to see how electromobility can be further boosted in Europe with the support of renewable energy sources and the smart and efficient use of energy infrastructures.

SEEV4-City Closing Webinar 1: Insights of the Project

Featured image

Autobatterijen en laadpalen die de stad voorzien van duurzame energie door slimme laadtechnologieën? Het project SEEV4-City (Smart, Clean Energy and Electric Vehicles for the City) laat zien dat dit kan. Tijdens de ‘closing webinar’, Insights of the Project, worden de resultaten en learnings gepresenteerd van zes pilots in vier Europese landen. De HvA coördineert en analyseert het project.

SEEV4-CITY
SEEV4-City, gesteund door het Interreg North Sea Region (NSR) programma, realiseert projecten waarin slim laden en ontladen van elektrische auto’s centraal staan. Zo dienen autobatterijen ook als ‘buffer’ voor de opslag en distributie van duurzame energie in de stad. Tijdens de eerste webinar op 22 april worden de resultaten van zes pilots besproken die zijn uitgevoerd in vijf Europese steden: Amsterdam (2x), Kortrijk (BE), Leicester (UK), Loughborough en Burton-upon Trent (UK) en Oslo (NO). Kom meer te weten over de wijze waarop e-mobiliteit in Europa wordt opgeschaald met behulp van hernieuwbare energie, zoals zonne-energie, en het slimme en efficiënte gebruik van energie-infrastructuren.

Wat was het startpunt vijf jaar geleden en waar staan we nu? Van bedrijventerreinen tot wijken met huishoudens, de pilots hadden te maken met uiteenlopende situaties, niveaus en regelgevingen. Wat zijn de learnings van zes verschillende aanpakken die hernieuwbare energiebronnen combineren met e-mobiliteit?

SMART CHARGING EN VEHICLE2GRID-TECHNOLOGIE
De technologieën die toegepast zijn bij de pilots, heten Smart Charging (slim laden) en Vehicle2Grid (V2G). Door Smart Charging en V2G wordt zonne-energie optimaal benut en weten laadpalen precies wanneer het ideale moment is om de auto op te laden. Als meerdere elektrische rijders bijvoorbeeld ‘s avonds, tijdens piekuren, hun auto thuis parkeren, zorgen de slimme laadpalen ervoor dat elke auto zo optimaal mogelijk geladen wordt. Bovendien kunnen de auto’s aan V2G-palen ‘ontladen’, door elektriciteit terug te leveren aan het elektriciteitsnet. Zo kan zonne-energie op de momenten van hoge vraag teruggegeven worden aan bedrijven en huishoudens.

DE TOEKOMST VAN E-MOBILITEIT EN DUURZAME ENERGIE
De closing webinars hebben één belangrijke focus: de toekomst. Hoe kan het gebruik van duurzame energie opgeschaald worden, welke groei van batterij elektrische auto’s (BEVs) en buffering wordt er verwacht en hoe knopen we dit zo efficiënt mogelijk aan elkaar? Meld je aan voor de closing webinar op 22 april, en zet ook alvast de overige twee webinars van 6 en 20 mei in je agenda. De webinars worden in het Engels gepresenteerd.
