Project: Orchestrating Smart Charging in mass Deployment

Acronym OSCD
Duration 01/03/2018 - 30/09/2020
Project Topic The goal of the Orchestrating Smart Charging in mass Deployment (OSCD) project is to enable mass EV deployment in the most economical way while sustaining grid services and utilizing renewable energy by orchestrating smart charging leading to reduced CO2 emissions. On the basis of the OSCD project, DSOs will have access to tools and grid-services enabling new and disruptive business models for e-mobility parties through which they can improve and influence the charging process to reduce grid expansion costs – creating benefits for the economy and society. The plan includes innovative ways to better understand the situation specific challenges in an integrated way, taking into account the grid complexity, better analyse the situation based on real and simulated data. We combine an academic and operational approach, leading to innovative, disruptive and advanced practical solutions that will improve existing protocols and enables the orchestrating of various interfaces and transactions. A better EV charging environment and a balanced grid are the results. In the project, we plan to orchestrate the various interfaces and protocols and create a solution that will enable to balance the electricity network capabilities and the EV charging/ driver needs. The capabilities and experiences of the different involved parties are complementary. The project combines several applications of smart charging together leading to grid benefits and making smart charging economically interesting for implementation, increasing the benefits of charging for the EV owner thus encouraging EV ownership and increasing the penetration of EV globally. Orchestration of Smart Charging is necessary to enable mass deployment of EV. The further development of (local) ‘grid services’ will put the EV in the position to ‘solve’ the DSOs (future) congestion challenge. Summarised, the result of the project will be ‘a better EV charging environment and a balanced grid’.
