About the project

GreenCharge seeks to demonstrate how technological solutions and associated business models can be integrated and deployed to overcome barriers to wide-scale adoption of EVs. The project takes important steps to achieving one of the dreams of a modern city: a zero-emission transport system based on electric vehicles running on green energy, with air pollution, traffic jams and parking problems things of the past.

GreenCharge is also devising and testing business models that encourage electric vehicles use and sharing of energy resources, allowing all those involved to cooperate in an economically viable way.

These innovations are being tested in three sites in Barcelona, Bremen and Oslo. Together, they cover a wide variety of factors: vehicle type (scooters, cars, e-bikes), ownership models (private, shared individual use), charging locations (private residences, workplaces, public spaces), energy management (using solar power, load balancing at one charging station or within a neighborhood, battery swapping), and charging support (booking, priority charging).
