The Green eMotion project was officially launched by Siim Kallas, Vice President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Transport, at a high-level kick-off meeting in Brussels on 31st of March 2011. Within four years, it prepared the foundation for the mass deployment of Europe-wide electromobility. The project had a total budget of €42 million and was funded by the European Commission with €24 million.
The Green eMotion consortium started with 43 and ended with 42 partners from industry, the energy sector, electric vehicle manufacturers, and municipalities as well as universities and research institutions. They have joined forces to explore the basic conditions that need to be fulfilled for Europe-wide electromobility. Main objectives of Green eMotion were:
Practical research was conducted in different demo regions all over Europe with the aim of developing and demonstrating a commonly accepted and user-friendly framework that combines interoperable and scalable technical solutions with a sustainable business platform. For the implementation of this framework, Green eMotion took into account smart grid developments, innovative ICT solutions, different types of EVs, as well as urban mobility concepts.
The project developed prototypes to connect the islands of electromobility existing at the time of the project start. An overarching ICT architecture was defined and standards, especially for ICT interfaces, were set. New business models for public charging infrastructure were analysed and ways shown for its optimised integration into the grid.
