Vito EnergyVille and EVConsult are joining forces by doing a research on large-scale sharing of electric mobility. In this study we research the feasibility and the critical success factors for the realisation of an integrated and geographical concentrated hub in which local parking facilities are constructed or refurbished into a multimodal service hub for electric vehicles linked to the production and storage of renewable energy.
Innovation through integration
Looking at Europe, the hub is an innovative concept and the implementation of this pilot project will be the first one in Belgium. This hub is innovative since it integrates electrical charging points, different modalities (cars, bikes, public transport such as buses), carsharing and the production and storage of renewable electricity. The starting point of the project is a local existent parking facility or a newly build parking area. Currently EVConsult and VitoEnergyVille are working on the business plan and are looking into financing possibilities to be able to realize the hub in cooperation with partners and a Flemish city or municipality in order the select a location that meets the necessary conditions.
VITO is an independent Flemish research organisation in the area of cleantech and sustainable development. Their goal is – just like our goal – to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.
EnergyVille is a collaboration between the Flemish research partners KU Leuven, VITO, imec and UHasselt in the field of sustainable energy and intelligent energy systems.If you’re interested in finding out more about THE future ‘Hub for Urban Energy & Mobility”, don’t hesitate to contact Robin Matton at email@example.com.
