SEEV4-City Closing Webinar 2: Vehicle-to-Grid and Smart Charging

The future symbiosis between emission-free transport and sustainable energy infrastructure


Due to the spread of the virus COVID-19, the SEEV4-City closing event is replaced by a series of three webinars taking place in April and May. This second webinar is about Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and Smart Charging: the future symbiosis between emission-free transport and sustainable energy infrastructure.

Focus of webinar 2

In recent years new technologies have been developed that can help maximize the synergies between electric vehicles and local renewable energy sources. SEEV4-City explored these opportunities in practice as part of its approach to A Smarter Electricity Grid for People, Planet & Profit: the electricity grid is used as an energy buffer, on both a daily and a seasonal scale. Across Europe investments in renewable energy production and charging infrastructure for electric vehicles are growing – it is fundamental to see how they can work together.

About SEEV4-City

Smart, Clean Energy and Electric Vehicles for the City (SEEV4-City) is an innovative project funded by the EU Interreg North Sea Region Programme that just came to its conclusion. Its main objective was to demonstrate that smart electric mobility solutions that integrate renewable-energy sources encourage take-up in cities.

The project looked at different pilot solutions and elaborated case studies and best practices based upon them. For this purpose, two approaches have been identified for testing:

  • Information and communication technologies can help to structure and maximize the synergies between electric vehicles and local renewable energy sources.
  • A Smarter Electricity Grid for People, Planet & Profit. The electricity grid is used as energy buffer, on a daily and a seasonal scale.

Join us for the 3 closing webinars to learn about the results of this project. Come to see how electromobility can be further boosted in Europe with the support of renewable energy sources and the smart and efficient use of energy infrastructures.
