The INCIT-EV project »Large demonstratIoN of user CentrIc urban and long-range charging solutions to boosT an engaging deployment of Electric Vehicles in Europe« will demonstrate the use of innovative set of charging infrastructure and technologies and its associated business models.
5 demo environments at urban, peri-urban and extra-urban conditions will be ready for the deployment of 7 use cases, addressing:
- Smart and bi-directional charging optimized at different aggregation levels;
- Dynamic wireless charging lane in an urban area;
- Dynamic wireless charging for long distance;
- Charging Hub in a park&ride facility;
- Superfast charging systems for EU corridors;
- Low power DC bidirectional charging infrastructure for EVs, including two-wheelers;
- Opportunity wireless charging for taxi queue lanes in airports & central stations.
The INCIT-EV project is designed according with the concept of integral development of infrastructure for mass charging of electric vehicles E8. The concept, which was developed by Eles’s experts, emphasizes the importance of positive electric vehicle user experience, which of course includes simple, intuitive and user-friendly charging, which brings societal benefits as well as benefits for the entire electric power system. In one of the Work-Packages with strong involvement from ELES, the partners will develop an application and services for managing, control and optimization of charging infrastructure in order to provide user friendly charging and driving of electric vehicles. Therefore it will be necessary to ensure the maximum acceptance of electric vehicles, reduce the cost of charging infrastructure management and reduce the impact of the rapid spread of e-mobility on electric power system. The project will seek the emergence of EV users’ unconscious preferences relying on latest neuroscience techniques to adapt the technological developments to the users’ subjective expectations. Based on the obtained results, the partners will prepare recommendations that will serve as a starting point for the design and development of user-friendly charging infrastructure for decision-makers and e-mobility industry.
