The European Commission has approved through its Interreg NWE programme; a three and a half-year project (until March 2021) “Clean Mobility and Energy for Cities” to facilitate the uptake of low carbon technologies, products, processes and services in sectors with high energy saving potential, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in North West Europe. The €7.4 million project will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in cities by combining renewable energy sources, energy storage and the charging of EV's using an innovative energy management system. CleanMobilEnergy will demonstrate that decentralised energy can be used more efficiently by using storage and a web based interoperable iEMS platform to balance supply and demand peaks thus creating better business cases to make large scale role out across the NWE economically feasible.
Within this project, a renewable energy generation plant will be built in four locations across the NWE. All partners together will develop a system for distributing energy flows across storage, charging facilities and the net, with the current being traded at a favorable moment in time. CleanMobilEnergy will also investigate whether the different combinations in the diverse countries lead to an economically viable system.
