EIfI-Tech & E-mobility in Baden-Württemberg
EIfI-Tech will represent the Interreg North West Europe project, CleanMobilEnergy, at the 2nd Municipal Network Meeting „Mobility on the ground @ Baden-Württemberg – Electrical and Digital“. Here the challenges of charging infrastructure, municipal electric vehicle fleets and car sharing will be discussed through lectures and moderated theme tables. The event is hosted by a local stakeholder within the EIfI-Tech network, e-mobil BW.
The Interreg North West Europe project, CleanMobilEnergy, will integrate various renewable energy sources, storage devices, electric vehicles and optimisation of energy consumption through one unique smart energy management system. The development of this intelligent Energy Management System (iEMS) will increase the economic value of renewable energy and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. The iEMS will assure the smart integration through interoperability based on open standards for data flows and analysis tools.
CleanMobilEnergy will make it possible for renewable energy sources to be used locally, so electric vehicles can be charged with 100 % renewable energy offered at an optimum price. Electrical energy from the grid will only be required when prices are low or renewable energy sources are not available, the iEMS monitors and optimises the system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One of the four pilot cities for the CleanMobilEnergy project is Schwäbisch Gmünd in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany. The e-mobility workshop on the 25th of September will connect EIfI-Tech, CleanMobilEnergy and other key players in electromobility innovations and policy in the region.
Building an E-Mobility Network
Due to the latest climate protection agreements, limit value overruns, noise pollution and other negative effects of traffic, the pressure to act on e-mobility in municipalities is increasing. In addition to the ongoing electrification in the mobility sector, the technological change must include networking and automation. The future of mobility is automated, connected and electric.
In an effort to actively support the cities and municipalities in the Baden-Württemberg region in Germany in this far-reaching mobility change, and to make the best possible use of synergy effects, the e-mobil BW regional agency initiated the municipal network „Mobility on site @ BW – Electric and Digital“. The official kick-off event was held on 17th May 2018.
The kick-off and the new municipal study by e-mobil BW presented a great deal of interest among numerous municipal representatives. Since then, the community network is taking shape more and more. In particular, the network should promote inter-communal exchanges, take current and future mobility issues in a hands-on manner, and identify best practice approaches to provide real benefit for local actors and creators. Together with these exchanges and organisations, the network wants to further develop and promote the network.
Participation in the municipal network meeting is free of charge and reserved exclusively for municipal representatives from politics, administration and municipal enterprises. The programme for this event can be viewed here.
EIfI-Tech will also be representing CleanMobilEnergy at the 6th Schwäbisch Gmünd Forum on Electromobility this September 25th, following the 2nd Municipal E-Mobility Network. EIfI-Tech will also run a booth at the event, during which local stakeholders and key players in electromobility in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany will gather to discuss innovations and policy related to e-mobility. The three-hour event is hosted by IHK Ostwürttemberg.
