A number of sub-calls are open including:
System approach to achieve optimised Smart EV Charging and V2G flexibility in mass-deployment conditions (2ZERO)
Digitally controlled charging solutions represent a fundamental building block of a full and effective shift to electromobility. When scaled to a mass-market-level, current uncontrolled charging (i.e. maximum available power from the moment the vehicle is plugged in) could contribute to create an extra burden on the power system. Mass availability of battery storage, provided by parked EVs (both light and heavy-duty vehicles) can however be turned into a clear upside if an integrated approach is adopted considering the different charging scenarios (public charging, home charging, depot charging, etc.). Moreover, the effective exploitation of EV charging flexibility can minimise investments in the electric grids, resulting in reduced system charges for the network users.
Nextgen EV components: Integration of advanced power electronics and associated controls (2ZERO)
Achieving innovative compact integrated solutions will be both a strong lever for future economies of scale and a strong advantage for flexibility that will satisfy user’s needs and increase acceptance, as well as an enabler for new powertrain architectures with distributed multiple wheel drive.
Nextgen vehicles: Innovative zero emission BEV architectures for regional medium freight haulage (2ZERO)
The action will focus on validation of full electric N2 and/or N3-category vehicle(s), specific regional, suburban and urban freight transport applications seamlessly integrated into fleets.
