Project: Optimization of regional infrastructures for the transition to Electric and Connected Autonomous Vehicles - EVA

Acronym EVA (Reference Number: 91188)
Duration 02/09/2019 - 30/04/2022
Project Topic 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 local and regional European context, that aims to a decentralized 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, by exploiting vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) power strategies as well as accounting for a 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.
