Optimization of regional infrastructures for the transition to Electric and Connected Autonomous Vehicles – EVA

ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems project.

The EVA project aims to find innovative solutions to coordinate the territorial infrastructures required for the emerging mainstream technologies in road mobility: Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs). In a regional european context, that aims to a decentralizes based renewable energy system, the EVA project will explore and assess how:(i)future diffusion of CAVs would affect urban planning and design, particularly under a “sharing economy” framework (SAV); (ii) management of peaks in power demand, due to a wide diffusion of electric mobility in the smart grid system, involving the power strategies vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) as well as decentralized renewable energy production system; (iii) optimize the EVs charging stations infrastructures bypassing investment in fast obsolescing ones; (iv) define new business models;, and (v) define guidelines to support the regional institutions.
