Stakeholders validation webinar
‘How to make the charging infrastructure and local electricity
grids future-proof?’

During this webinar, the participants had the opportunity to gain insights and have a say on the list of
recommendations SEEV4-City partners propose for seamless integration of smart charging and V2X concepts to boost the uptake of the clean vehicles as well as harmonisation of energy and mobility plans.

We sought inputs and validation before and during the webinar as we hope to contribute to making the charging infrastructure and associated aspects in your cities cheaper, more efficient and future-proof.

Webinar
Policy learning from SEEV4-City pilots: what policies do we need for the future?

The last SEEV4-City webinar focused on regulatory and policy recommendations that will enable electromobility to be further boosted in Europe with the support of renewable energy sources and the smart and efficient use of energy infrastructures.

Webinar
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.

About the webinars and seev4-city

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 final conference 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.

Discover SEEV4-City Six Pilots in Europe

“Learn all about one of the largest battery backup systems in Europe, the Johan Cruijff ArenA,  and how this makes business sense”
“Find out how one of the largest charging plazas, with 100+ chargers, operates – the VULKAN district in oslo”
“Discover the practical implications of operating a smart charging scheme on 500+ public chargers as it’s done in the city of Amsterdam”
