The aim of this workshop is to discuss strategies and needs of cities and operators for upscaling electric full-size commercial fleets and fast charging infrastructure, with a focus on urban freight and service trips.
The ASSURED project aims at boosting the electrification of urban commercial vehicles and their integration with high power fast charging infrastructure. To achieve this, ASSURED will test six public transport buses, two garbage trucks, one delivery truck, and one light commercial delivery vehicle with automatic fast charging solutions. The goal is to charge different vehicles using the same infrastructure, which is what makes ASSURED so innovative. More information here: https://assured-project.eu/
The workshop aims to discuss different views and needs of local authorities, logistics service providers, grid and charging infrastructure operators and other stakeholders.
The workshop will take place back-to back with the EEVConvention on Policies and Best Practices (http://policies.eevc.eu/, Oslo, 25th of September), which includes among the speakers Noshin Omar, ASSURED coordinator and Director of the Battery Innovation Center of VUB, and Karen Vancluysen, Secretary General of Polis Network.
