Name & description
e-SMART will activate cooperation among public authorities and e-mobility and energy operators through Smart Living Labs on all levels of governance. It will lead, through a Smart Mobility Road Map for Alpine Space decision makers on intermunicipal level, to a common approach in development of e-mobility services in Local Public Transport (LPT) & Last Mile Freight Freight Logistics (LML) and in planning of an adequate electric-vehicle charging-system network for entire Alpine region. The project will design and test a set of transnational operational instruments for public and private technicians to plan e-mobility infrastructure and services in passengers and freight transports in the framework of smart grid and smart territories: a Smart Energy Toolkit.
PAE European Automotive Cluster
The project PAE brings together clusters from the Greater Region area (Lorraine/France – Luxembourg – Wallonia/Belgium – Saar and Rhineland-Palatinate/Germany) to strengthen competitiveness and attractiveness of the Greater Region’s automotive industry through coordinated cross-border actions.
EACN for Joint Industrial Modernisation Investments
EACN for Joint Industrial Modernisation Investments was a project submitted by 6 partners of the European Automotive Cluster Network EACN. It supported the initiation and facilitation of enhanced cluster-to-cluster collaboration as well as of R&D cooperation and joint investments from cluster members to face common challenges in the automotive industry and to improve competitiveness of cluster members. The project addressed four main topics: (1) Virutalisation for planning processes, (2) Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, (3) Elasticity of production processes and (4) Skills and competences. PVF was coordinator of this project.
e-MOTICON aims at developing a deployement strategy for recharging infrastructures for electric vehicles, ensuring a homogeneous and well adapted recharging infrastructure network fitting to the special conditions of the alpin space (topography, meterology, tourists, ...). The main outcomes will be a white book for future public and private operators as well as a Alpin Space community around electric mobility.
- Funding programme: FP7 Electromobility
- Project duration: 06/2012 - 05/2015
The main objective of the project was the development and implementation of a knowledge base on (invehicle) high voltage traction battery deterioration; a safe management structure for EV battery recycling; and strategies and technologies for battery re-use and recycling (in particular lithium recycling).
- Funding programme: DEUFRAKO
- Project duration: 01/2011 - 12/2013
The CROME Project aimed at deploying coherently charging stations in Alsace and the neraby Germany, and at testing a fleet of electric vehicles in an transnational environment.
E-Light - Advanced structural light-weight architectures for electric vehicles
- Funding programme: FP7
- Project duration: 01/2011 - 12/2013
The E-LIGHT project targeted urban electric vehicles (EVs). The project aimed at exploring aspects and requirements needed for designing optimal EV architectures.
ELMOs - Electromobility solutions for cities and regions
- Funding programme: FP7 Regions
- Project duration: 12/2011 - 11/2014
The overall goal of the proposed project was to promote more sustainable transport through the development of electromobility solutions for cities and regions (ELMOS). The project delivered concepts for a better exchange of electromobility knowledge at regional and EU level, concepts for new business models and for cross-border field tests.
ENEVATE - European Network of Electric Vehicles and Transferring Expertise
- Funding programme: Interreg IVB NWE 2007-2013
- Project duration: 01/2009 - 12/2014
ENEVATE aimed at facilitating and supporting an accelerated introduction of electric mobility in NW Europe through structured transnational cooperation between public authorities and business representatives.
S_Life - European Synergies and Co-operation for Sustainable vehicle along the Life-Cycle
- Funding programme: FP7 RoK
S_LIFE project will develop strategies and a Joint Action Plan to link, mobilize and coordinate regional resources with more focus on new scientific, economic and structural coherent greening solutions challenges.
