Replay the Webinar: How to make the charging infrastructure and local electricity grids future-proof? – June 24, 2020

Last Wednesday, June 24, SEEV4-City Project partners AVERE and POLIS organised its final webinar, in cooperation with the Clean Mobile Energy project.

With the project nearing completion, SEEV4-City partners have collated a set of recommendations they propose for seamless integration of smart charging and V2X concepts to enable a boost in clean vehicle uptake as well as harmonisation of energy and mobility plans.

To seek the participants feedback and validation, registrants of the webinar received a concept report of the recommendations beforehand as well as a series of poll questions during the webinar that allowed the participants to provide their input ‘live’. The webinar programme and speakers supplied the participants with additional background and context to the recommendations. With contributions from:

Introduction to objectives of the webinar

  • Richard Kotter (Northumbria University, UK), Sabina Asanova (Polis)

Setting the scene

  • Accelerating towards more sustainable societies
    Anna Domenech Abella, Nissan Europe “Intelligent Mobility for Energy Transition” initiative within the EIP Smart Cities
  • Benefits of smart charging infrastructure and V2X identified in the SEEV4-City project
    Robert van den Hoed, University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam
  • Implementation & upscaling smart charging: Barriers & Drivers
    Hugo Niesing, Resourcefully, CleanMobilEnergy

How to make it happen?

  • Presentation of the main SEEV4-City policy recommendations on further integration of the urban mobility and energy plans as well as the integration of the V2X and smart charging concepts
    Richard Kotter (Northumbria University, UK), Sabina Asanova (Polis)
  • Discussion and validation of the policy recommendations
    All participants

Getting practical

  • Lessons learnt in procuring smart charging technologies
    Jorden van der Hoogt (Cenex Nederland)
  • Final conclusions and next steps
    Richard Kotter (Northumbria University, UK), Sabina Asanova (Polis)

Amongst the registrants were many representatives of municipalities and other local authorities as well as market parties involved in electric mobility and renewable energy. The participants inputs will be used to reflect on our project findings and recommendations towards the finalisation of the report and ultimately contribute to making the charging infrastructure and associated aspects in your cities cheaper, more efficient and future-proof.

Stay tuned for the publication of the final reports on Cenex NL and SEEV4-City website (publications page).
