Enabling standardisation and interoperability in e-mobility
VTT’s Marko Paakkinen and Mikko Pihlatie, and UITP’s Aida Abdulah, explain how the Horizon 2020-funded ASSURED project is driving standards and interoperability forward in electric charging infrastructure, and how it can benefit operators, authorities and cities.
What is the ASSURED project and how long has it been running?
ASSURED is a project co-funded by the European Commission to boost the electrification of urban commercial vehicles and their integration with high-power, fast-charging infrastructure. The project is developing high-power charging solutions for full-size, heavy-duty applications, specifically e-buses, e-trucks and wireless charging for e-vans. The fundamental goal is that each of these solutions is designed to supply energy for a whole fleet of vehicles and will be able to charge various types of vehicles.
