Project full name: 
iZEUS – Smart Grid and Smart Traffic Services for Electric Mobility
The research project is aimed at developing concepts and exemplary applications for the integration of electric mobility in private traffic as well as in urban commercial traffic. The integrated traffic concept is to be tested and demonstrated in fleet tests with a significant number of vehicles.


Project full name: 
Generally Accepted Reliability Principle with Uncertainty modelling and through probabilistic Risk assessment
The GARPUR project designs, develops, assesses and evaluates such new reliability criteria to be progressively implemented over the next decades at a pan-European level, while maximising social welfare


Project full name: 
Modular Development Plan of the Pan-European Transmission System 2050
The e-Highway2050 project is supported by the EU Seventh Framework Programme and is aimed at developing a methodology to support the planning of the Pan-European Transmission Network, focusing on 2020 to 2050, to ensure the reliable delivery of renewable electricity and pan-European market integration. The project will result in a modular development plan for possible electricity high- ways and options for a complete pan-European grid architecture, based on various future power system scenarios.


Project full name: 
MOBINCITY – Smart Mobility in Smart City
MOBINCITY aims at the optimization of FEV (Full-Electric Vehicle) autonomy range and the increase in energy efficiency thanks to the development of a complete ICT-based integrated system able to interact between driver, vehicle and transport and energy infrastructures, taking advantage of the information provided from these sources in order to optimize both energy charging and discharging processes (trip planning and routing).Main specific objectives are: To develop a system to be installed within the vehicle able to receive information from the surrounding environment, which can have influenc


Project full name: 
MObility based on eLEctric Connected vehicles in Urban and interurban smart, cLean EnvironmentS.
MOLECULES is a demonstration project with three large scale pilots in Barcelona, Berlin and Grand Paris aiming to use ICT services to help achieve a consistent, integrated uptake of Smart Connected Electromobility (SCE) in the overall framework of an integrated, environmentally friendly, sustainable mobility system.

Mobility 2.0

Project full name: 
Mobility 2.1
Mobility2.0 will develop and test an in-vehicle commuting assistant for FEV(Full-Electric Vehicle) mobility, resulting in more reliable and energy-efficient electro-mobility. In order to achieve a maximum impact, Mobility2.0 takes an integrated approach of addressing the main bottlenecks of urban FEV mobility: ‘range anxiety’ related to the limited FEV range, scarcity of parking spaces with public recharging spots, and the congestion of urban roads.

econnect Germany

Project full name: 
From Aachen to Leipzig, from the Allgäu to Sylt.
Seven municipal public utilities are working together with research and development partners in order to develop smart grid and smart traffic solutions in the areas of ICT for the sustainable introduction of electric vehicles in the urban and rural areas, taking into account public transports systems and power generations systems. The formation of seven major focus points guarantees that the contents are processed in their entire breadth and depth.


Project full name: 
Development of methodologies and tools for new and evolving DSO roles for efficient DRES integration in distribution networks
With the growing relevance of distributed renewable energy sources (DRES) in the generation mix and the increasingly pro-active demand for electricity, power systems and their mode of operation need to evolve.evolvDSO will define future roles of distribution system operators (DSOs) on the basis of scenarios which will be driven by different DRES penetration levels, various degrees of technological progress, and differing customer acceptance patterns.The evolvDSO consortium addresses the main research and technology gaps that need to be solved for DSOs to efficiently fulfil their emerging and f


Project full name: 
Cities as Drivers of Social Change
Smart grids make current energy networks more intelligent and accessible; new ways of producing energy will soon make citizens not only energy users but also energy producers. The CIVIS project explores the potential of social networks and communities to significantly reduce energy use and carbon emissions.


Project full name: 
Advanced concepts and tools for renewable energy supply of IT Data Centres
A set of challenging energy concepts will be developed in the framework of the project under an holistic approach integrating the following technical solutions: management of the IT load following 'green' objectives, low-energy air-conditioning systems, solar cooling, interaction with district heating and cooling networks, re-use of heat, optimal use of heat and cold storage, and integration in smart grids.
