CleanMobilEnergy (CME) contributes to a significant reduction of GHG emissions in the NWE urban areas which assists NWE to meet EU 2030/2050 targets. Currently, high investments are made in renewable energy resources (RES), but they are not being used efficiently. At the same time, the market uptake of electrical vehicles (EV’s) is accelerating, mainly charged with electricity from fossil fuels. Both result in unnecessary GHG-emissions, and in unprofitable businesscases due to high (grid)investments and low revenues on RE.
There is a high chance to reduce GHG-emissions CME develops and pilots a new intelligent energy management system (iEMS) that can balance energy demand and (fluctuating) RE supply, by using EV’s and local storage solutions for temporal storage. This way the mismatch between production peaks (daytime) and consumption peaks (in evening) is resolved, resulting in better RES-efficiency, less need for fossil energy and reduction of GHG-emissions. RES-businesscases will be more profitable, encouraging further uptake of RES. For this, a partnership is composed of frontrunner and follower NWE-cities, knowledge institutes and professional networks.

The projects objectives are the following:
CME contributes to a significant reduction of GHG emissions in the NWE urban areas which assists NWE to meet EU 2030/2050 targets.
Smart balancing of supply and demand will increase the efficiency of RES and reduce demand for CO2 intensive energy. For this, CME will develop and pilot an interoperable energy management system (iEMS
The 4 City pilots cover different types of RES, storage and EV’s, different contexts (legislative, economic, organisational, and socially) and very different city environments (residential, industrial and controlled area’s like municipal depots). This is essential to develop a widely applicable system for future implementation across Europe.
