SCALE (Smart Charging Alignment for Europe) is a three-year Horizon Europe project that aims at preparing EU cities for mass deployment of electric vehicles and the accompanying smart charging and V2X infrastructure (Hardware & Software). SCALE is at the forefront of innovation in the cross-cutting fields of energy management and electric vehicle mass deployment. The uptake of EVs in a mass-deployment scenario, coupled with the flexibility of renewable energy generation, could form the basis of a de-centralized power system simultaneously decarbonizing both transport and energy sectors. To this end, SCALE’s different V2X solutions and innovations will be systematically tested, validated and deployed across various demonstration sites and use cases in Europe, thus, being globally the first-of-its-kind attempt at this scale with the strategic objective to create an open system solution, deploying a user-centric approach for cleaner energy and transportation systems.
Prepare the mass market uptake of bidirectional charging with a user centric charging ecosystem and interoperable systems where users and fleet operators have flexibility, and ensure smart charging is possible at an EU-wide scale.
- Streamlining the participation of EV users in the energy market and evaluate the business case of Vehicle-2-Grid and Vehicle-2-X applications
