The electrification of road transport is an important element in reducing local emissions. For cities, the challenge is to find the most appropriate path towards electrified transport and to identify the necessary investments, including charging infrastructure. EVCITY establishes guidelinesfor cities and stakeholders involved in the roll-out of electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure. The guidelines describe the market roles and business opportunities for new products and services in the mobility and partly regulated energy market. They also supply information on the practical aspects of installing charging infrastructure and on some related regulations. EVCITY outputs include: ¿ optimised solutions for charging electric vehicles in cities through a smart charging adaptor that drivers of electric vehicles can use via a standard wall socket, thus lowering the investment costs for deploying charging points in a city; ¿ the design of a smart-charging adaptor; ¿ the design of a smart energy payment service that will enable fleet operators to offer a replacement for the fuelling cards of lease cars; ¿ a proposal for a service that enables the reduction of peak loads caused by the simultaneous charging of multiple electric vehicles; and ¿ a proposal for an intelligent data logger and data mining service that will generate important data at chosen points in the charging infrastructure and that will be used to reduce peak loads.
