The GreenCharge project will contribute to what researchers call “zero-emission mobility”. In practice, it means developing new business models, new technologies and guidelines that cities can follow in order to facilitate more electric vehicles without contributing to increased climate emissions.
By demonstrating how the new solutions work in three cities, Barcelona, Bremen and Oslo, more cities and countries are expected to follow. The project is led by Sintef and is inspired by elements of the sharing economy. It will also find solutions that take into account a number of challenges related to the desired growth in the number of electric vehicles.
Vision is a future where both cars and mopeds are electric, and that settlement for cargo is painless for both the seller and the buyer.
