ASSURED - fASt and Smart charging solutions for full size URban hEavy Duty applications comprises 40 partners from 12 different EU Member States working on the electrification of urban commercial vehicles and their integration with high power fast charging infrastructure. High-power charging solutions for full-size, urban, heavy-duty applications will be tested, aiming towards 100% interoperability for different types of vehicles. For this, various vehicles (public transport buses, garbage trucks, delivery vehicles) and ultra-fast charging solutions will be evaluated and tested by different European public transport operators.
ASSURED aims at boosting the electrification of urban commercial vehicles. Therefore, it is indispensable, to provide a convenient high-power fast charging infrastructure. The ambition of the project is the development and testing of high-power solutions for full-size, urban, heavy-duty applications as well as realizing true interoperability. Charging infrastructure must be able to charge various types of vehicles and, eventually, supply energy to a whole fleet of buses. This will help reducing the costs, and thus improving the business case of e-mobility, and support the standardisation of the various infrastructure elements.
The results established in the ASSURED project will be:
Rupprecht Consult analyses city needs and requirements as regards ultra-fast charging infrastructures and provides input to an integrated charging and energy planning perspective for SUMP in ASSURED cities.
Furthermore, Rupprecht is involved in the development of business models for interoperable charging infrastructure being able to charge various kinds of heavy-duty vehicles. Rupprecht also supports the organisation of ASSURED user groups for public transoport operators and freight users, thus ensuring the wider involvement of European stakeholders.
