Slovenian transmission system operator (TSO) ELES has partnered with Renault for the first time as part of a European project in the field of e-mobility, the Slovenian TSO said on its website, adding that the project is also strongly supported by the Turin automotive industry.
ELES is among 33 partners from 8 countries which have designed the project “Large demonstratIoN of user CentrIc urban and long-range charging solutions to boosT an engaging deployment of Electric Vehicles in Europe – INCIT-EV”.
The first TSOs that addressed the challenge and closely connected with the automotive industry were the Slovenian and Spanish TSOs
Because of the potential negative impacts of a rapid increase in e-mobility on the electric power system, it is very important that e-mobility is also addressed by the electricity TSOs. The first TSOs that addressed the challenge and closely connected with the automotive industry were the Slovenian and Spanish TSOs.
The project is co-financed by the European Union through Horizon 2020 in the amount of EUR 15 million.
The project aims to demonstrate an innovative set of charging infrastructures, technologies and associated business models, ready to improve the EV users’ experience beyond early adopters, thus fostering the EV market share in the EU, ELES said.
The project will seek the emergence of EV users’ unconscious preferences relying on the latest neuroscience techniques to adapt the technological developments to the users’ subjective expectations.
We want technology that will enable users to use e-vehicles as intuitively as possible, while not having a negative impact on the power system, ELES said.
ELES has emphasized that the INCIT-EV project is designed in accordance with the concept of the integral development of infrastructure for mass charging of electric vehicles E8. The E8 concept is comprised of 8 pillars which are a key to achieving a mass transition to sustainable e-mobility by all stakeholders.
